About the Ultimate Hike

Hiking since 2011, 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, 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.
