The City of El Paso’s Live Active EP, in partnership with the Department of Public Health’s Be Well El Paso program and the City’s Shape It Up employee program, invites the community to the 2023 Hike-A-Thon series beginning Saturday, April 22.
The free series is open to beginner or experienced people of all ages who are interested in exploring the outdoors, our City’s trails, or wanting to improve their overall health and wellness by getting outside and moving.
Hiking is a fantastic way to disconnect from technology and reconnect with nature. Aside from visiting different trailheads throughout our City, hiking is a great way to get fresh air, meet new people, and find an opportunity to practice mindfulness techniques, engage in self-reflection, strengthen your muscles, and boost your health.
Hikes are beginner-friendly to moderate difficulty. Registration is not required but is encouraged to receive the most up-to-date information on each hike. To sign-up, visit bit.ly/41DupaF. Participants will be given a Hiking Passport, and if they complete four of the hikes, they will receive a prize. An additional prize will be given to participants who complete all five hikes.
