Our trail challenge is back - with a twist!
Registration is now open for FLT60!
The Finger Lakes Trail Conference’s annual challenge is back – with a twist! In celebration of our 60th Anniversary Year, we’re upping the ante and challenging you to complete SIXTY miles on the Finger Lakes Trail this year for the FLT60
The challenge is FREE! All miles completed in calendar year 2022 will count – this includes branch trails, miles from your favorite hikes that you do over and over again, and all miles for out-and-backs.
It's also simple: register online, track and log your miles throughout the year (online mileage submission for 2022 will be available soon) and when you hit 60 miles you’ll receive a sticker, a patch, and a certificate for your accomplishment. We’ll also give you a shout out in FLT News and other places we shout out to our trail-loving friends.
As in years past, we have a BONUS challenge for those of you who spend more time on the trail. Complete 60 miles per month for six months or more and you’ll earn a special FLTC 60th Anniversary pint glass! Anyone who completes 60 miles or 60K (37 miles) in a one day will also receive a pint glass (this must be a self-supported effort).
This challenge has been met with great enthusiasm the last several years. In 2021, we had almost 400 finishers who logged over 37,000 miles! To kick things off in 2022, ALL miles from January through the end of March will count – no matter where you do them – as long as they are outdoors! So get out there and find some joy in these winter months on whatever trail, path, or route you like to walk, hike, or run, and get to the FLT as much as you can!
We look forward to your participation and can’t wait to hear about your adventures! Send us your pictures <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> and share them on social media tagging @fingerlakestrail and using hashtags #flt60 and #fingerlakestrail. You might see your pics shared in Footnotes, FLT News and other promotional materials!
