The Hike-A-Thon is an annual celebration of hiking, nature, and exploring the great outdoors and has been hosted at Miami University Natural areas every fall for the past 12 years. To keep the tradition alive we’ll host a virtual Hike-A-Thon challenge and expand from 1 day to 1 month and from 3 trails to include all local trails.
