About the Ultimate Hike

Ultimate Hike is the original 28.3 mile endurance event on the Foothills Trail, and the only hiking event to take on children's cancer. You will hike 28.3 miles of the Foothills Trail, primarily in South Carolina, while you help raise money towards finding a cure for children's cancer, the leading cause of death by disease in children.

How to Get Started

If this is your first time hiking with us, please follow the steps below. If you are an Ultimate Hike alumni, you can skip to Step 2.

Step 1:
Attend an Information Session

You are highly encouraged to join us for an in-person or phone information session to learn more about the program before you register for Ultimate Hike.

Step 2:

At registration, each hiker is provided their own online fundraising and training portal with everything you need for hiking and fundraising success.

Step 3:

Every Ultimate Hiker makes a commitment to raise funds to help fund children's cancer research. A fully equipped support team will be with you every step of the way to help you reach your goal.

Step 4:

Ultimate Hike is more than a hike - it's a weekend adventure, an achievement of a lifetime, and a chance to find cures for cancer's youngest fighters.
