About the Oboz Trail Experience
Oboz Footwear, Outdoor Gear Exchange, and Green Mountain Club are inviting you to complete as many of Burlington's selected trail segments as you can in one month. This Experience is designed for you to re-discover your favorite trails, learn about new or lesser-known trails, push your limits, and recreate locally! You’ll also have the chance to compete against local legends, your peers, or yourself if that’s more your style.
The Oboz Trail Experience: Burlington is open to walkers, hikers, and runners. How many of the 100 miles of the beautiful trail system can you complete? It’s free to register and sign-up is easy.
Registration opens June 1st, with the Experience running from July 1st to July 31st. All participants will receive various swag from Oboz Footwear, Outdoor Gear Exchange, and Green Mountain Club. Other rewards can be unlocked by completing promoted trail segments throughout the Experience and everyone who completes 100% of the Experience will be entered to win one of five pairs of Oboz shoes at the end of the Experience.
