Registration NOW OPEN for 2023 Hiking Marathon

Click HERE to learn more about and register for the 2023 hiking marathon!

The marathon runs the entire month of September, in which you have 30 days to complete this year’s trails.

Hike 26.2 miles individually, or in small groups over one month at your own pace!

Each year, the Friends of the Trails specially select a set of trails on the Cumberland Plateau. 

If you participate in at least one trail, you can get a free t-shirt at the Hit the Trails Festival in October.

If you finish the marathon, you get a shirt and a patch.

Register a dog with you, and the dog will get a bandana!

Don’t feel that you can complete 26.2 miles? Try the half-marathon (13.1 miles) or the 10K Challenge (6.3 miles)!

You can download a log-sheet to record your progress, as the marathon is completed on the honor system.
