March 26, 2024

Oboz challenges everyone, anywhere, to hike in April.

Bozeman, Mont./OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – For the month of April, Oboz is challenging walkers, hikers, runners, and people using mobility assistive devices to get out and hike as part of its Trails for Trees Challenge. For every hike completed over a mile long in the month, Oboz will plant a tree and participants will receive chances to win weekly prizes from Oboz and challenge partners.

Registration is free and open now at trailsfortrees.com.

“Since the first pair of Oboz hit the trails in 2007 we have planted over 5 million trees and we are on a mission to plant 5 million more,” said Amy Beck, Oboz President. “Last year we challenged people to hike for 10 days and as a result we planted over 5,400 trees. With this year’s Trails for Trees Challenge we hope to plant four times as many and inspire people to get outside and enjoy the outdoors no matter where in the world they live.”

After registering at trailsfortrees.com, participants must track their hikes on a GPS-enabled

device such as a Garmin, Suunto, or Apple 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 weekly prizes from Trails for Trees Challenge partners Leki, Osprey, Smartwool, and Oboz, including the new Oboz Cottonwood hikers.

The Cottonwood Collection is Oboz Footwear’s most responsibly sourced hikers to date. These capable waterproof hikers feature recycled and bio-based materials as well as responsibly sourced leathers and trims. Offered in men’s and women’s low and mid heights, the Cottonwood is geared toward the adventurer who values getting outdoors as much as protecting it for future generations.

The Oboz Trails for Trees Challenge runs from April 1, through April 30, 2024, and is free to register at any time. Participants can complete as many hikes as they wish on any given day, as long as each hike exceeds 1 mile. Additionally, participants will receive a virtual badge in their Trails for Trees Challenge trophy case for each trail they complete, signifying how many trees they plant.
