Trailblaze Challenge

You are invited to join us on an amazing journey, the Trailblaze Challenge. Trailblaze Challenge is a symbolic life-changing experience.

Designed as an endurance event, the Trailblaze Challenge gives participants the choice of 28.3 or 16.4 mile distances to tackle the terrain of the Foothills Trail, all in one amazing day! This is a hike, not a race, and caters to all levels from novice to advanced outdoor enthusiasts. 

By supporting the Trailblaze Challenge, participants help Make-A-Wish South Carolina grant more wishes than ever statewide this year.

Trailblaze Challenge occurs twice a year: a Spring hike and a Fall hike. Prior to each hike there is a recruitment period where individuals can sign up then participate in a 16-week training period before the big hike. For the latest schedule, visit
