Join Hokies everywhere Oct. 16-Nov. 20 

The Hokie Hike is back for another year and you can join from anywhere! Thousands of Hokies joined the fun last year completing hikes all over the world. This year we're gearing up for more fun with in-person meet ups, a children's option, and new Hokie Hike swag. We're kicking off the fun at Homecoming Weekend! 

Register for the Hokie Hike and then hike anywhere, anytime between Oct. 16 and Nov 20. Share your journey with us using #HokieHike! We'll celebrate the great outdoors and how far Hokies can go together.

Participants will receive a box of Hokie gear and a portion of each registration fee is a gift to support outdoor recreation for current students.

This year groups on campus and in chapters across the country are hosting meet ups to hike together. Register for the hike and then sign up for a meetup. You don't have to hike as a group, but can find a gathering if you'd like.
