“Twelve in 12” Hiking Challenge

After the past few weeks of gloomy weather, it’s a joy to see the sun and know that summer is offically here. Why not enjoy Colorado’s scenic outdoors this season by hiking a few of our local trails! Do you think you could hike one trail per week? If so, you may have fun participating in the:

“Twelve in 12” Hiking Challenge

What does this challenge involve?

Simply hike each of the trails (found here: Twelvein12Challenge) within 12 weeks (Summer months – June 1 to August 31*)  while exploring different areas of the Pikes Peak region. Document your hike by taking a selfie on the trail. Post your photo to the Facebook group page titled “Twelve in 12” (more info below).

The trails are within the Pikes Peak region and range from easy to moderate in difficulty. The distance varies. Some trails offer more than one route – you choose!

How do I participate?

1) Tell me you are accepting the challenge by leaving a reply/comment in the box below. For example, “I, Nicole Miller, accept the Twelve in 12 challenge.”

2) Access Facebook.com and search for the private group “Twelve in 12“.  Ask to join this group; this is where you will post your photos.

What do I earn for participating?

Stronger legs, a more efficient cardiovascular system and bragging rights! Also, a chance to win a complimentary personal training session. For every trail you complete you earn one entry into the drawing.**

Any rules?

You may hike more than one trail in any given day or week. Hiking the same trail more than once doesn’t mean additional entries. If you hike trails not listed (encouraged) you will receive a pat on the back instead of additional entries. Remember this challenge is merely to provide you with a reason to move your body and a way to interact through social media.

Thanks to my client and friend, Karen Garbee, for sharing this idea and allowing me to put my spin on it.

Are you in or are you out?

*the date range actually covers 13 weeks, but I thought the “Twelve in 12” title had a better ring. **The drawing will take place the first week of September. Winner will be notified by email and on the group page. Winner has 6 months from that date to use complimentary session.
