The Twenty-Fifth Annual Rachel Carson Trail Challenge will take place on June 18, 2022, the Saturday nearest the summer solstice, the longest day of the year. The Challenge is a 35-mile long, one-day, sunrise to sunset endurance hike on nearly the entire rugged Rachel Carson Trail. Unlike a footrace, the “challenge” is not to win, but to endure, to finish the hike in one day. This time, the Challenge starts in North Park at sunrise and ends 35 miles later in Harrison Hills Park. The deadline for finishing is sunset, 8:54 PM or 15 hours 4 minutes, whichever comes first.
They are going to need ham radio volunteers at many of the check point along the trail. There are many different shift from morning to late afternoon shift. Check out the signup form below to see where and at what times the shift are at. If you’d like to help out, review the Volunteer Roles and Responsibilities and sign up!
NOTE: It will require to sign in use “rctc” for both user-id and password.
