Metroparks brings back the Trail Challenge with some big changes

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Metroparks Toledo is bringing back the Trail Challenge for the third year in a row and it's shaking up the rules a bit to help you log more miles. The new initiative is a partnership with the Take If Off Toledo campaign which runs through May of 2020.

The brand new Trail Challenge will allow participants to count all miles they walk, run, bike, or paddle toward their goal, even if they log them outside the Toledo Metroparks.

To sign up, all you have to do is register (there is a $20 registration fee) and you can start logging miles. Participants receive a t-shirt and a hiking stick and can earn badges for meeting different milestones.

The event will include special trail hikes, paddles and bike rides as well as access to a private Facebook group to keep you motivated.
