All Trails Challenge: Ready, Set…

Conservation // March 27, 2019

Spend your summer exploring Wissahickon Valley Park for the 2019 All Trails Challenge!

Mark your calendars folks, the All Trails Challenge 2019 is starting early this year! We want you in Wissahickon Valley Park hiking, biking, running, and riding all Summer long. So we’re gearing up for the ATC 2019 to begin in May! What a fabulous way to spend your summer, exploring all 50+ gorgeous miles of trail in the Wissahickon! This year the challenge will run from May 13th  to August 28th. FOW members will be able to register for the All Trails Challenge beginning on May 13th and get a leg up on the competition.  May 27th will be the official start for everyone else.

ATC isn’t a race and you don’t have to be a conditioned athlete to take part. ATC is a family-friendly activity that invites people of all ages and fitness levels to hike, walk, run, bike or horseback ride through every corner of the beautiful Wissahickon over a four-month period. (Dogs, on leash, of course, love it too!)  The funds you raise are what allows us to continue our mission to sustain the Wissahickon Valley Park. We are excited and ready, so plan now to spend your summer in the Wissahickon and join us for the All Trails Challenge 2019!
