Registration Open for 2020 Phoenix Summit Challengehttps://www.phoenix.gov/newsroom/parks-and-recreation/1560Parks and Recreation10/9/2020 3:30:00 PMhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/NewsArticle/Attachments/1560/psc20 with background.jpgRegistration Open for 2020 Phoenix Summit Challenge<div class="ExternalClass26D67E7E9CFA4FBAB11107879996074B"><html> <p>​Registration for the <a href="/parks/trails/psc" target="_blank">2020 Phoenix Summit Challenge (PSC20)</a> opened earlier this week and spots are still available for those interested in participating. </p> <p>PSC20 will feature a seven-day virtual opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts of all abilities to hike multiple summit trails throughout the city's preserve land. Changes needed to be made to this year's event due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but the spirit of the annual challenge lives on in this revised format. Participants will track their hikes by using the interactive online Walker Tracker application.</p> <p>The dates of PSC20 are Saturday, Nov. 14 through Friday, Nov. 20. Registration costs $30 and includes entrance into the event for one hiker, access to the Walker Tracker app and this year's <a href="https://statefortyeight.com/" target="_blank">State Forty Eight</a> event t-shirt. <br></p> <p> <a href="/parks/trails/psc" target="_blank">Register by visiting the PSC20 webpage</a>.<br></p> <p>The Walker Tracker app will provide a fun, engaging, self-directed experience through which participants can choose where and when they complete their hikes. The app will be available after registration is completed, and will need to be downloaded from the app store to a smart phone. A log-in, password and profile will then need to be created. It will provide maps of the seven specific trails. As hikes are completed, the app will keep track of steps and mileage. Hikers will also be able to view the progress of other event participants. There also is a discussion forum where participants can communicate with one another and cheer each other on.</p> <p>Trail list (to be completed in any order during the seven-day event):<br></p> <ul> <li>Ridgeback Trail at Apache Wash Trailhead (Sonoran Preserve)<br></li> <li>Dixie Mountain Summit Trail at Desert Vista Trailhead (Sonoran Preserve)<br></li> <li>Lookout Mountain Summit Trail 150 at Lookout Mountain (Phoenix Mountains Preserve)<br></li> <li>Shaw Butte Trail 306 at Shaw Butte / North Mountain Visitor Center (Phoenix Mountains Preserve)<br></li> <li>Alta East Trail at South Mountain Park/Preserve<br></li> <li>Holbert Trail at South Mountain Park/Preserve<br></li> <li>Pyramid Trail at South Mountain Park/Preserve</li> </ul> <p>Participants can complete the seven suggested hikes or any other trails they choose. Those with mobility issues can choose to complete their steps on flatter terrain or even on a treadmill. The challenge will be complete once a pre-determined number of steps are accumulated. The steps translate into mileage which in turn add up to the total distance of the seven suggested hikes. Total mileage of the seven hikes adds up to 25.2 miles with an elevation gain of 5,230 feet.<br></p> <p>This annual event helps to raise dedicated funding for the more than 41,000 acres of desert park and mountain preserve land located throughout Phoenix. Sign up, hike with friends and have a great time on the trails to support a great cause.<br></p> <p>Questions about this year's event can be e-mailed to the PSC Team at <a href="mailto:psc@phoenix.gov" target="_blank">psc@phoenix.gov</a>.<br></p> </html></div>https://www.phoenix.gov/parksNewsparks-and-recreationNatural Preserve LandParks & RecGregg Bach602-350-1506602-262-4994gregg.bach@phoenix.govhttps://www.phoenix.gov/newssite/Lists/MediaContact/Attachments/22/Gregg_Bach.jpgPhoenixParks
