Can someone else pick up my packet?

Yes, just make sure they have your full name when asking for your packet.

Will there be packet pickup on the Challenge Day?

Yes, you can pick up your packet at 5:30am on Challenge Day, before the hike.

Can we start hiking before 7am?

There will be no support on the mountains for hikers before 7am.

Will the trails be open to the public?

Yes, the trails are also open to the public during the hike.

On Which mountain should I start?
That decision is completely up to you. However,there are 2 schools of thought:
1.  Hike Calderwood and EastWing first as those are the mountains you’ll need to drive to and are the shortest (knock them right out at the beginning)
2. Hike WestWing and Sunrise first because the are longer, so again, get those out of the way and save the smaller ones for last.
Opinion: Hike the shorter ones first so you still have the motivation on the longer ones to keep going.
Will breakfast be served?

Yes. Breakfast will be served on campus beginning at 5:30am. Breakfast is sponsored by the Peoria Firefighter Charities.

How do I get to the peaks?

Hikers can drive to all of the mountains, but asked to walk to both Sunrise and WestWing from the Copper Hills Church Campus. There is ample parking at the other mountains for all hikers, although carpooling is suggested.

What is the deadline to be off the moutains?

Trail Support for Hikers ends at 2pm and it is highly encouraged all athletes be off the mountain by this time.

Will the trails be marked?

All the trails will be marked with color-coded ribbons and signage. Simply follow the ribbon that matches your bib.

When can I pickup my packet?

Packet Pickup is Thursday & Friday, from 5pm-7pm at Copper Hills Church.
Packets can also be picked up on the day of the event, starting at 5:30am.
