FLT50 2021

We are excited to announce the second year or our FLT50 Hiking Challenge!

The challenge is FREE! It begins now and will run through the end of the year. Complete 50 miles on the FLT, submit your mileage, and you’ll receive an awesome FLT50 patch and sticker so you can show off your accomplishment – and your love of the FLT – to the world. We’ll also send you a certificate and give you a shout out in FLT News and other places we shout out to our trail-loving friends.

For those of you who put in more miles on the trail, we have some added incentive for you! Complete 50 miles each month for at least six months this year, or run 50 in one day (50K OR 50 miles—we don’t care which!) and you’ll also receive a special gift from us. Note that if you complete a 50K or 50 miles in a day, it must be a  self supported hike/run (i.e. not part of an organized race), to qualify you for the additional swag.

Share your stories and photos tagging @fingerlakestrail and use the hashtags #FLT50 and #fingerlakestrail and we might use them in Footnotes, FLT News, and other promotional materials.

This challenge was met with great enthusiasm last year, with 404 finishers logging 29,194 miles. We hope to reach 500 finishers this year and 40,000 miles. To kick things off, ALL miles will count for the first three months – no matter where you do them – as long as they are outdoors. So get out there and find some joy in these winter months on whatever trail, path, or route you like to walk, hike, or run, and get to the FLT as much as you can!

We look forward to your participation and can’t wait to hear about your adventures!

Register using the form below. For your convenience, we have included a mileage tracker, but mileage will be submitted online this year. You will need your participant ID # to register your miles (you will receive this via email when you register).
