I don't know many details, but a friend participates in this hikathon to raise money for youth, so I said I'd post here if anyone is interested. I do not think the hikes are crazy wilderness style; local hikes at the local parks...which can still be fun. If anyone is interested in this here's the link with the details is below. I believe they're on facebook/twitter as well.
