Hit the Trail Challenge another HUGE success!

Congratulations on another hugely successful Hit the Trail Challenge! Hikers, bikers, and runners were crisscrossing the 47 miles of the Whitefish Trail all month long in May. Community participants in the Challenge logged an incredible 19,007 miles in 31 days to help support trail maintenance and operations. Given that the spirit of the Challenge is really about getting as many people out on the Trail as possible during the month of May, we checked our trail counter data at the end of the month and are excited to announce the total number of miles tallied was 31,790! It's exciting to know that people were getting after it and enjoying the Trail. The Hit the Trail Challenge is an important fundraiser for the Whitefish Trail and we thank each and every one of you for participating.

Our workplace teams logged 5,988 miles and the Whitefish Middle School logged 2,399 miles! We are so grateful for our 14 teams - a little local competition makes this event even more fun. And we are SO PROUD of the Middle School! We hope you enjoyed your time on the trail with all the spring wildflowers. Thank you again to our prize sponsors Glacier Cyclery & Nordic and Sportsman & Ski Haus.
