April 4, 2023
Oboz challenges everyone, anywhere, to hike once a day May 1-10.
Bozeman, Mont., (April 4, 2023) /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – For the first ten days of May, Oboz is challenging walkers, hikers, runners, and people using mobility assistive devices to get out and hike at least one mile a day. For every hike completed as part of the Oboz Fast Trail Challenge, Oboz will plant a tree and participants will receive chances to win prizes from Oboz and challenge partners.
Registration for the challenge is free and open now at https://hikeanywhere.obozfasttrail.com.
“To date, we have planted over 5 million trees and we are on a mission to plant 5 million more,” said Amy Beck, Oboz President. “May is a great time to get outside, and we hope that the Fast Trail Challenge will inspire people to get out and get moving while helping kickstart our goal of planting 5 million more trees.”
After registering, participants must track their hikes on a GPS-enabled device such as a Garmin or Suunto watch, or through a mobile phone using an app like Strava, MapMyFitness, or Sports Tracker. Not only will each hike result in a tree planted, but for each hike completed, participants will receive an entry to win prizes from Fast Trail Challenge partners Osprey, All-Trails, DripDrop, Dometic and Oboz, including the new Oboz Katabatic fast trail hikers.
The Katabatic fast trail hikers are a new breed of hiking shoes from Oboz that are fast and light while providing the stability, durability, and performance Oboz footwear is known for. The Katabatic is offered in men’s and women’s styles in mid and low heights, as well as with or without Oboz B-DRY waterproof and breathable technology.
The Oboz Fast Trail Challenge runs from May 1, through May 10, 2023. Participants can complete as many hikes as they wish on any given day as long as each hike exceeds 1 mile. Oboz will plant up to 4 bonus trees on behalf of any participant who completes more than 10 hikes. Additionally, participants will receive a virtual badge in their Fast Trail Challenge trophy case for each trail they complete, signifying how many trees they plant.
Oboz will be hosting after-parties in celebration of the completion of the Fast Trail Challenge to include food, beverages, films, and giveaways at locations around the country. Participants will be informed of the after-party location nearest them mid-way through the challenge.
