Mountain Commerce Bank Challenge

Let's get outside!

Join us for the 2024 Mountain Commerce Bank Challenge – a 75 mile challenge to connect everyone to nature, make new friends, explore new places, and have fun!

Take on the challenge to log 75 miles on hikes, rides and paddles selected by former Olympian and outdoor enthusiast Missy Kane. We’ve selected adventures for you to explore or pick places you already love to go! Earn and patch and enjoy prizes and a celebration for your accomplishment.

New to the outdoors? Missy and other REI experts will teach you where and how to go at our free intro hiking, biking and paddling group outings held each month. And meet new friends and challenges on our four adventures led by Missy.

It's fun, easy and free!


Keep track of your miles with this tracking sheet. Choose from our suggested routes or pick your own places to explore! Don’t be afraid to visit the same trail twice – after all, a trail in spring looks different once fall arrives!


New to the outdoors? The four group outings will be led by Missy Kane and will teach you where and how to go hiking, biking and paddling. You’ll discover new places and meet other outdoor adventurers!
