Get out for a hike and help us raise funds for the restoration of Van Cortlandt Park’s spectacular hiking trails. Similar to a Walk-a-Thon, we are asking you to seek out supporters to sponsor your hike for this rain or shine event.

Participants can choose one of three hiking routes (1-5 miles) the day of the event.

$25 Registration Fee includes a Hike-a-Thon t-shirt and an expertly guided hike of our beautiful park.
Register by Wednesday April 22nd, 2015.

Register Online or Download Hike-a-Thon Registration Form and Mail It In.

The first 100 participants to register and raise $100 or more ($50 if under 18) in pledges will receive a goody bag.

Once you register you will receive additional information on collecting pledges.

Last year, over 90 people came out for the Friends’ 5th Annual Hike-a-Thon and raised over $9,000 for the restoration of the hiking trails this year. Thank you to everyone who participated and/or helped to support the event.

With last year’s donations our Volunteer Trails Crew made improvements on many trails including:

– Repaired drainage ditches along the Old Croton Aqueduct
– Installed waterbars on the Cross Country Course
– Installed check dams on the John Muir Trail
– Closed unofficial trails, aka desire lines, in the park

 

Thank you to our 2015 Supporters (To Date)
