Gear Giveaway Winners

The week before Thanksgiving we held two combo finisher parties: one for the New England and Colorado Rockies challenges; and another for the Central Oregon and Pacific Northwest challenges.

One of my favorite activities is reading through the hike logs shared by our challengers. Your photos and stories are inspiring.

Each year, our challengers learn just how challenging completing the Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge really is. As if life wasn't crazy enough, trying to schedule hikes that are sometimes hours away, 2020 threw all of us a giant curve ball. Even so, some of our challengers found a way to make it happen.

All finishers in each of these challenges received a certificate of achievement and a special embroidered “Finisher” patch.
