Early Bird registration for the 4th Annual SoCal Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge is now open!
The Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge is designed to be a tough-but-achievable goal. If you’re willing to train, put in the time, and get on the trail on a regular basis, you can do this.
Many have used this challenge as part of their training program, helping prepare them mentally and physically for even bigger goals, like hiking the John Muir Trail or climbing Mount Whitney. Others are relatively new to hiking, and used the challenge to get in shape, or just to spend more time in nature.
Whatever your reason, this is the best time to register for our 2018 Six-Pack of Peaks Challenge, with the best deal on registration.
What’s New for 2018?
The core peaks of the challenge remain the same, and are designed to build on each other helping you “level up” with each subsequent peak. As in past years, you can hike the peaks in whatever order you choose, from any route you find challenging, and at pace that works with your schedule.
Most people hike the peaks after the snow is melted from the trails–usually by mid-June–tackling no more than one ever week or so. But we’ve had challengers push to complete all six peaks in six days, too! It’s up to you.
What’s new this year are two alternate peaks that you can use as options. You can swap Mount Baden-Powell for Mount Wilson, and you can swap Ontario Peak for Cucamonga Peak. If this is your first time taking the challenge, I recommend sticking with the original six peaks, but for those who are working on their third or fourth challenge, this gives you a couple options to mix it up.
Also new this year, we have registration gift cards available. These are actual, physical gift cards that make a great way to give friends and family the gift of more adventure in 2018. You pick the registration level.
Explorer and Trailblazer-level challengers get the welcome kit, and Trailblazers also get their choice between two t-shirts and a tank top.
Now is the best time to sign-up for our 2018 challenge. And as in past years, a portion of each registration goes to support Big City Mountaineers–a great non-profit that gives under-served teens an opportunity to experience wilderness adventure.
Hike more. Get strong. Do good.
