Located in and around Duluth and the Arrowhead Region


The Trailfitters Trail Challenge is back for year 7! Test your hiking abilities while taking in the sights! The Trail Challenge is a hiking challenge consisting of 9 trails totaling 36.4 miles broken down into 3 categories: Easy, Moderate, and Difficult.

Once the trails are posted on Saturday, June 1st, the fun begins! All finishers have 44 days to complete all 9 trails, then come visit us in store!

Similar to years past, to prove that you completed the trails, participants will need to submit their photos taken at our specific photo locations. We would LOVE it if you would post these on Instagram or Facebook by tagging @trailfitters and using the hashtag #TFTC24. If you do not have a social media account or if you would rather not post, please bring in your photos (on your phone or printed) to show us upon completion!

Once you finish the challenge, head on over to the store! Upon arrival, please be prepared with either your posts or photos to show an employee so we can get you checked off as a finisher, and recieve your prizes!

All participants who complete the TFTC ’24 will receive a Trailfitters giftcard, TFTC ’24 Nalgene & prizes from our brand sponsors!
