Calling all women over age 50 who are passionate about the outdoors!

We're excited to announce that, along with Oboz and Osprey, we're collaborating with 52 Hike Challenge and In Solidarity to launch OVER 50 OUTSIDE.

The sponsorship includes the 52 Hike Challenge Ultimate Package, monthly inspirational check-ins, gear advice, and fun perks from brand sponsors. Applications are open now through August 15, 2021.
