Hike (or Run or Walk) 22 miles in Van Cortlandt Park in 2022!

About this event

The Challenge:

Hike 22 miles in Van Cortlandt Park anytime during 2022, post on social media from the park to spread the word, and wear your 22 in ‘22 Finisher’s Patch with pride once you attain your goal (because you earned it!).

VCPA will provide you with route options within Van Cortlandt Park, the third largest park in NYC, but you pick your method (hike, run, stroll, skip) and you pick when (as long as you complete it all by December 31, 2022). Van Cortlandt Park, located in the Northwest Bronx, has over 20 miles of trails of various levels of difficulty. If any of the suggested trails are too strenuous, you can substitute as you like. The specific trails do not matter as much as hitting the goal of 22 miles.


Register now to receive the list of 9 different trails you can hike and some start-up swag! More details below.

Registration closes October 15, 2022 but the sooner you register, the more perks you will receive, and the more time you will have to meet the challenge.


For only $40 per adult ($25 for those under 18), you can participate, receive swag, and make a difference in Van Cortlandt Park. You also gain access to participant-only hikes in the park, led by fabulous (and knowledgeable) VCPA staff. All proceeds support Van Cortlandt Park Alliance’s environmental education, internship and community stewardship programs.

The Swag:

Every participant gets a VCPA drawstring bag, VCPA die-cut sticker, VCP map, and invitations to exclusive 22 in ‘22 guided hikes (optional but will count towards your 22 miles). After you complete your hikes, you will receive an exclusive

22 in ‘22 Finishers Patch, a virtual filter to use on social media, and bragging rights! Patches will be mailed starting in Fall of 2022.

22 in ‘22 Packets:

Packets, which you will receive once you sign up, will include suggested routes, completion form, and initial swag, and will ship first class mail (allow 2 weeks for arrival).

Get Social:
