The #Onward Challenge: Season 3

Unit price  per 

One day, Trip Host Anna and her bff Carla decided to go on a casual walk that accidentally turned into a 17-mile hike. Apparently, they only took a 5-minute break the entire 17 miles. So, to finish that hike, they’d say, “Onward!” to motivate each other to keep going. Ooookay. It was crazy but that's how the Onward Challenge (and hashtag) was born.

The #Onward Challenge kicked off in 2021 with a 36.5 mile "ultra" hike-a-thon that took fam over 7,350 feet of elevation change over 15 weeks from January to April. Each hike has its own challenges, testing your stamina and endurance in extreme weather conditions. But when you're done, you're never going to forget what you accomplished.

And in 2022, we're doing it again, but faster* and at new mountains!
