Seek The Peak Hike-a-thon for Mount Washington ObservatoryMt. Washington
Founded in 2001, Seek the Peak is the nation’s premier hiking event. Presented by Eastern Mountain Sports, Seek the Peak will draw over 500 hikers and their families from across the eastern seaboard and beyond to the White Mountains this July.
Seek the Peak is a classic participant-driven fundraising event. Once hikers register for Seek the Peak, they are encouraged to solicit donations from family and friends in support of their efforts. On Seek the Peak Saturday, they hit the trail with the 6,288-foot summit of Mount Washington or seek alternative hikes. Once they complete their hike, they are treated to a tremendous awards party with a dinner, a retail expo and thousands of dollars in prizes.
Seek the Peak hikers are not world-class climbers or professional athletes. They are everyday folks from across the country, sharing a passion for the outdoors and a love for the mountains. Often times, their climb to the summit during Seek the Peak is their very first time on Mount Washington and they use the event to achieve that tremendous personal goal. Other hikers use the event each year to spend quality time with friends and family on a one-of-a-kind adventure. Still others do the event specifically to support the legendaryMount Washington Observatory. In all cases, they are rewarded for their efforts.
