What's your summit? 

 

We welcome you to join us for our first annual Hike-a-Thon this summer. The Hike-a-Thon is a great way for you to get outside and support a great cause. All proceeds from the Hike-a-Thon will support Scouting in the Narragansett Council. 

Who is it for

The Hike-a-Thon is open to everyone and can be completed anywhere! Visiting family in California and decide to go on a hike-log those miles! Want to stay local and hike during summer camp-log those miles too! And don’t forget about some of the great urban hiking opportunities available to us in New England!

How does it work

4 simple steps:

1. Register for the event  
2. Set up your customized donation page. Share your customized page with your friends and family and ask them to support your Hike-a-Thon journey

  • You will need your my.scouting.org log-in information
  • Detailed instructions on setting up your donation page can be found here

3. Share your customized page with your friends and family and ask them to support your Hike-a-Thon journey

4. Go hike and log your miles using our mileage logging tool (a link will be shared with your registration confirmation)

Hikers are encouraged to share pictures of your journey. When posting use #GetScoutside, #WickedAwesomeSummit and tag the Narragansett Council. If you share a great story and/or picture of your hike using these tags you can even win great prizes!

What is the cost

$25 for hikers, but the entry fee if free for Adventure Card holders. Once any hiker reaches $25 of their $200 fundraising goal they will receive a patch and t-shirt. The $25 registration fee for non Adventure Card holders counts towards the $200 goal. 

Think you can raise more than $200-go for it! We'll have prizes for most money raised. 

FAQ- Can Scouts participate?

Yes! However, Scouts (youth members) cannot participate in the fundraising portion of this event. They can hike for fun and still log miles with their parent/guardian who is participating. We'll have prize categories for our youth members.
