2018 Pony Express 50/20

WHAT

The 50/20 is the ultimate hiking challenge. The event offers opportunities to hike 10, 20, 25, 30, 40, or 50 miles over local trails. The hike is "supported," meaning that there are various stops along the way that provide food, drink, first aid, encouragement, and bail-out options.

Shorter distance hikes are available for those who are interested, e.g. 5 miles, 10 miles and 15 miles.

WHY

The event is an ideal opportunity for Scouts to complete the "roadblock" 20 mile hike needed for the Hiking Merit Badge (an Eagle required Merit Badge) – a hike that few units otherwise conduct. It will also give you bragging rights for life and to learn to do hard things. 

WHO

Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Scout Leaders and all family members

PRICE

$25.00 per participant includes a t-shirt, drinks and refreshments

PREREQUISITES

Boy Scouts of America Medical Form Parts A and B

WHAT TO BRING

Hat, sunscreen, hiking shoes-comfortable and sturdy, water, snacks, cell phone, etc.
