Trail-A-Thon: 102 Miles for 102 Years

$75 Registration ends October 28, 2022 at 11:59pm EDT
Description

Help celebrate the Trail Conference's birthday by taking part in our annual Trail-A-Thon!

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference has been creating safe, enjoyable access to nature since 1920. It's thanks to the incredible generosity of Trail Conference volunteers and advocates that we all have such a wealth of outdoor opportunities in the most densely populated area of the country. Help us celebrate that legacy!

Trails give us so much: from respite to adventure to a pathway towards physical, mental, and emotional health. Our Trail-A-Thon is a chance to support safe and sustainable trails and healthy parks. Explore a favorite park, try out a new trail, take a lap around your neighborhood, or even hit a treadmill! While ticking off your miles, you'll also have the opportunity to raise money for the Trail Conference and protect the land you love in the process. This event will help raise awareness and financial support to continue our mission for another 100 years.

~An individual can only receive one prize for the milestone mile prizes 
*Team totals are not eligible for milestone fundraising prizes, only individuals
**Setting a higher goal does not raise the $75 donation required of each participant. That means someone who sets a $1,000 fundraising goal will still only need to raise the $75 minimum. A participant's card will only be charged if the minimum $75 has not been raised by October 31.
