The Maryland Challenge
41 mile hike
September 29, 2018
The Maryland Challenge is hiking the entire length of the Maryland portion of the Appalachian Trail. 41 miles, from Pennsylvania to Virginia, in 1 day.
The mid-Atlantic Hiking Group will be having their 4th Annual MAHG 41 Appalachian Trail Challenge.
The total cost is $45.00 payable to MAHG when you register and $16.50 for the shuttle to take you from Harper's Ferry to Pen Mar, PA. The shuttle is optional and you can choose to find other means to get to the trail start in Pen Mar. Registration and details can be found at the link below.
If you have ever considered doing the Maryland Challenge then this is a great event to do it. With a shuttle service, designated break stations with snacks and water, and a good number of people to walk with it can’t be any easier.
We Don't Quit AR Club will be having training hikes to prepare for the Maryland Challenge.
For those of you that have asked why 41 miles is the top distance on the point sheet and not just 40, now you know.
