What is Hike 2015?
Hike 2015 is a 9-week hiking event designed to motivate and inspire all of us to get outside and get hiking!
The event starts on May 31, 2015 and is hosted by us here at Tales of a Mountain Mama and the community at Hike Like a Woman. Every Monday evening we’ll post a surprise challenge hike for the next week.
Complete the challenge hike during the week, share your photo and you’ll be entered to win cool prizes.
You can participate in just 1 challenge or all 9 challenges, the point is just to get out there, get hiking and have fun!
How do I participate?
It’s easy to participate in Hike 2015 and it’s absolutely FREE.
Don’t forget to tag us on twitter and instagram so it’s easier to find your photos.
If you aren’t on social media but still want a chance to participate just shoot either one of us an email with your photo submission. The only thing we ask is for your permission to use your photo on our websites &/or social media sites.
Here’s our contact information:
Rebecca: rebecca (at) justtrails (dot) com -or- Amelia: mountainmamatales (at) gmail (dot) com
Each Monday Rebecca and I will compile photos select one winner, the person who inspired us the most on the challenge the week prior. We’ll notify the winner and ship out prizes promptly.
Why should I participate?
Because it’s fun to play outside, share your adventures and have a chance at winning some cool prizes too! We’ve got some awesome sponsors lined up for this event.
What are the challenges?
We want the weekly challenges to be a surprise but here’s an idea of a few that you can expect: Take a hike with a friend, hike with a garbage bag and pick up any trash you see along the way, and hike a trail that is “new to you”…
Trust me, the challenge hikes are going to be a lot of fun!
Hey Amelia, will you be participating?
Of course! But I won’t be winning any swag. That’s for you all!
Can my husband, son, brother, grandpa, male hiker friend participate? What about my kids?
Absolutely! We aren’t going to discriminate against gender, age, political affiliation or favorite ice cream flavor. Most of our prizes will be gender neutral.
What kind of swag can I win?
