About the Event

Planning to take your thru-hiking skills to the next level? Whether it's starting to learn about making your own gear, upping your food game, safely navigating advanced terrain, assessing the weather, or pushing for more miles, a crew of highly experienced thru-hikers will be there to share their knowledge.

The event will be run as smaller group breakout sessions with time for Q&A. Participants will get to attend 2 sessions live during the event, and have access to watch recordings of all sessions following the event.

Attendees will also be automatically entered to win some fabulous gear from our sponsors!
