Join the National Park Service to celebrate Healthy Parks Healthy People by participating in the 100 mile challenge (winter, summer, or both) along the trails within Saratoga National Historical Park - participants are able to cross country ski, snowshoe, hike, or bike to complete the challenge. Keep track of miles you've accumulated in the park and when you reach that magic number - 100 - you will earn a special prize that places you in that elite group of wilderness pedestrians. The winter challenge takes place January 1, 2018 through April 30, 2018 and the summer challenge takes place May 1, 2018 through September 30, 2018.
Logging Your Miles:
Upon registration, an activity log will be provided to you to assist with tracking your mileage. When you have reached 100 miles, bring your log to the visitor center to receive your prize!
Join the 1,777 Club:
Just because you reached the 100 mile mark, doesn't mean you have to stop logging your miles! We're excited to announce a long term challenge for our visitors to rack up 1,777 miles here at Saratoga National Historical Park. All miles must be completed during the challenge time frames as posted (either Jan. - Apr., or May - Sep.) and must be completed within Saratoga NHP boundaries. Any participant signing up for a 100 mile challenge will automatically be signed up for the 1,777 challenge, so make sure you log those miles! Coinciding with the 250th anniversary of the Battles of Saratoga, the deadline to reach 1,777 miles will be autumn of 2027 - more details will follow!
Bring Your Dog Along for the Challenge:
Dogs are great companions for enjoying the outdoors and are allowed on trails at Saratoga National Historical Park. Canine companions can participate in this challenge. To complete this challenge, each participating pet must hike 100 miles in the park with their human companion.
