Registration is Open for 6th Annual Hike-a-thon

Registration is now open for the 6th Annual Hike-a-Thon which will take place on Saturday April 25th, 2015 at 10am. Here’s your chance to get out for a hike and help 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 will be able to choose one of three hiking routes (1-5 miles) the day of the event.

A $25 Registration Fee includes a Hike-a-Thon t-shirt and an expertly guided hike of our beautiful park. The first 100 participants to register and raise $100 or more ($50 if under 18) in pledges will receive a goody bag.  Register Online or Download Hike-a-Thon Registration Form and mail it in by Wednesday April 22nd, 2015.

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.

Check dams previously installed in the Northwest Woods of Van Cortlandt Park. Funds from this year will allow us to complete similar projects.

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

We hope you will join us on Saturday April 25th for the 6th Annual Hike-a-thon in Van Cortlandt Park.
