Summertime and the living is easy. That's what they say at least. Summer time is no time to give up on fitness. Yeah, you have plenty of backyard BBQs you will probably attend. Yeah, those cold beers sure do taste good on a hot summer day. But, before you know it, fall will be here. Before you know it you will be complaining about how out of shape you are, as you hike to your favorite lookout. This weekend, the Backcountry Hunters and Anglers are putting together a reason for you to stay fit, and have fun.

According to the Hike to Hunt event page

BHA’s Hike to Hunt Challenge is a virtual competition designed to build awareness for the issues facing our wild public lands and waters, motivate hunters and anglers to get outside and get in shape, and encourage participants to raise funds for BHA’s conservation work.
Inspired by the Everest challenges in the ultra-running scene, where competitors climb the equivalent elevation of Mount Everest, Hike to Hunt participants will be covering the equivalent distances of some of our priority landscapes and policies from wherever they are.
This year we’re opening the Hike To Hunt field to multiple disciplines including biking and paddling. Sign up to Hike/Run, Bike, Paddle or do all three in the “All In” Challenge! Compete solo or with a team!
This challenge will have you facing scenarios you may find yourself in while out hunting this fall. If you are someone who wants to go in light and come out heavy, then you are going to want to participate. Plus, it is all for a good cause. Conservation of our public lands and waters.
