2017 Fall Trailblaze Challenge


It's not a race ... It's a journey.

Trailblaze Challenge is an endurance event to benefit Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina, and you're invited to join us!

Event Information

The Trailblaze Challenge is a 28.3 mile hike where participants can tackle the terrain of the Foothills Trail, all in one amazing day! This is a hike, not a race, and caters to all levels from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts. As well as being an extraordinary physical test, the real challenge is to raise much needed funds to grant the wishes of children in central and western North Carolina with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich their lives with hope, strength and joy. By supporting the Trailblaze Challenge, you will help Make-A-Wish Central and Western North Carolina grant more than 300 wishes this year.
