Summer Trails Challenge

The challenge is on. Local businesses have contributed to a Community Match Pool and now our community needs to hit the trails! Every mile that is walked, biked, or ran on trails and logged on our website is $1 to GVLT from the Community Match Pool. 1 mile=$1. It is that simple.

Last year our community rose to the challenge, logging over 26,000 miles in just two weeks, exceeding our goal and securing the full $20,000 from the Community Match Pool.

Businesses are upping their game and the challenge is bigger than ever. Stay tuned for the announcement of this year's challenge goal!

Together we've logged

Hey Bozeman, are you ready for the challenge?

The Summer Trails Challenge starts June 3rd, National Trails Day, and runs through June 23rd. Keep track of your miles and log them on this page. You will fill out a simple form and watch the mileage tracker go up and up! 1 mile=$1 to GVLT from the Community Match Pool which has been generously sponsored by local businesses.

We’ll celebrate our success with a finale party on Friday June 23rd at 4:30pm. Supporting GVLT is free, your miles will help GVLT continue to expand and enhance the Main Street to the Mountains trail system.

New this year:

  • Raise the Bar: Want to challenge your community to get outside? Individuals will be able to contribute to the Community Match Pool during the first week of the challenge to ‘Raise the Bar’. There will be a donation form on this page so you can push our community to hit the trails.
  • Teams: Sponsoring businesses are included in an optional drop-down menu on the logging form. If you’re a client, employee or friend of the business, log miles on their team to help them reach their goals!
  • Prizes: This year we are asking you to log your miles as Run, Bike, or Walk. We will be awarding a prize for Most Miles Overall, Most Miles Biked, Most Miles Ran, Most Miles Walked

Local businesses have pitched in $45,000 to the Community Match Pool. That means our community needs to hit the trails for 45,000 miles in just three weeks. Can we do it?
