The NYARA Hike-A-Thong is becoming the traditional “knock the cobwebs off your body and get moving again before race season starts” event. The great thing is that if you’ve sat on your duff all winter, you can still rock this low-key, yet fun race. Well, “race” is a strong word. It’s more like people wearing NYARA thongs running around the woods for a few hours. Come to race and win fabulous prizes or come out to hike and just enjoy the beauty of the great northeast while sporting your NYARA thong.

A NYARA Thong!
The 2017 Hike-a-Thon(g) will have a fresh new format!
This year’s Hike-A-thon will be held in the wooded hills of Morris County at Mahlon Dickerson State Park.
We are changing up the format a little bit this year and adding in a Poker-Run style challenge in addition to requiring everyone to carry 10% of their body weight in their packs.
There will be multiple, pre-defined loops of varying distances mapped out for everyone. Each loop will have an opportunity to grab a playing card from a deck of cards. You can run/hike as many loops as you want within the time limit in order to get the best hand that you can. The runner/hiker with the best hand at the end of the time limit will walk away with a special prize!
Maps will be provided and all of the course will be on marked trail. Depending on the weather, snowshoes may be helpful!
Don’t walk through life just playing football. Don’t walk through life just being an athlete. Athletics will fade. Character and integrity and really making an impact on someone’s life, that’s the ultimate vision, that’s the ultimate goal: the bottom line.
