We are teaming up with the ladies from HikeItBaby for the 10K Women Trail Project. This is an initiative funded by the REI Force of Nature grant to get women and girls hiking all across North America and we want to see YOU, the #womenwhohike community join us in getting on the trail with your friends, family and local communities so that together we can hit this goal of 10K women on the trail in 2018.
So… how does it work? To participate, register (link in bio) and pick a trail to hike every month for a year, then invite your fellow women who hike to join you. This can be done by using our Facebook groups, all of which can be found on our website. Log your hikes and make sure to add in the number of women you’ve inspired to get out on each hike.
When women come together for a like passion and goal… we can move mountains. As a trailblazer for this project, I @Im_NicoleMarie am excited to see all of you getting out there with one another and building relationships and experiences on the trail, side by side with women who hike.
REI found while many women know getting outside is good for them, they have a hard time finding inspiration. In a 2017 study of women in the outdoors, they found 65% of the women surveyed could not think of an outdoors woman who inspires them! And, 6 out of 10 women say men’s interest in the outdoors is taken more seriously than women’s.
We want to prove them wrong! The goal is to see if, together, we can inspire 10,000 women in 2018 to hike, log their adventures, and who they brought along.
To participate, register, pick a trail to hike every month for a year, then invite your sisters, mom, aunts, and friends to join you. Log your hikes and make sure to add in the number of women you inspired to get out every hike. Not a Hike it Baby member? No problem! Sign up for a FREE 90-day trial on Hike it Baby - no need to pay membership fee to participate. All women are eligible, you do not need to have a baby or child.
This is a FREE program. Throughout the year you’ll receive emails to encourage you to get out there and have access to a Facebook group for inspiration which will feature our 100 Trailblazers, female influencers from various outdoor organizations, blogs and social media.
General registration opens November 1. You can join at any time.
Program: November 1, 2017 - September 1, 2018
