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, runners, and ADA mobility devices. How many of the 111 miles of the beautiful trail system can you complete? It’s free to register and sign-up is easy.
Registration opens August 1st, with the Experience running from September 1 through September 30. All participants will receive various swag from Oboz Footwear, Outdoor Gear Exchange, and other partners. Unlock other rewards by completing Promoted Trails (you will receive a text and/or email when you complete one), and everyone who completes even just one trail will be entered to win one of five pairs of Oboz shoes at the end of the Experience!

Participating is a Few Clicks Away and Registration is Free
1. Create an account with Terrain Scouts.
2. Register for the Oboz Trail Experience (It’s recommended you add your cell phone during registration as it will be used for important messaging during the Experience).
3. Link an Activity Tracking account to the challenge (don’t worry, there are several free tracking options! You’ll be able to create one if you don’t already have one).
4. If you are using an Activity Tracking app on your phone, be sure it is downloaded and that you are logged on. Better yet, go test it out and make sure you know how to start, end, and save your activities!
Engage With Your Trail Community
New for 2022 - Teams! Create or join a public team (anyone can join) or a private team (by invite only) and easily invite others to be on your team with you. Just click on the Twitter or Facebook share links, or copy the invite link and send it however you prefer. The trails are always more fun when we share them together! Team members are still able to receive Promoted Trail rewards and any individual awards.
Be sure to check in throughout the month to see your progress, view the Current Event Standings, Activity Feed, and Participant Chat. And don’t forget to upload photos from your trail time on Instagram using #ObozTrailX. Our favorite photos will be randomly awarded with bonus goodies!
And finally, please always respect our local trails. Refer to the Leave No Trace Principles, take only pictures, leave only footprints, and pick up any litter you find along the way.
