50km BP Trails Challenge &

319km Hike Da Boot Challenge

APRIL 1 - SEPTEMBER 30, 2024


Caring.  It's our nature.  

This year's 50km BP Trails and 319km Hike Da Boot Challenges are calling you to get out in nature while caring for local long-term care residents on the Burin Peninsula.  This spring a summer, join the challenges and help us reach our goal of raising $25,000 to purchase new long-term care beds for the residents of Blue Crest Nursing Home.  

50km BP Trails Challenge: Enjoy local trails on the Burin Peninsula, or in your hometown.  Complete 50km of trails to complete the BP Trails Challenge.

319km Hike Da Boot Challenge: Complete the distance from Goobies, down the boot to Marystown, and around the loop - a distance of 319km.  Swim, wheel, stroll, hike, bike, walk or run!  Complete 319km to complete the Hike Da Boot Challenge.

You can register for either challenge by clicking the links above, or by calling us at (709) 891-3456. Registration is $40, or you can collect sponsorships from your family and friends.  Participants that raise more than $200 in sponsorships will be entered to win our grand prize!

Although we are suggesting our local trails on the Burin Peninsula to be completed during the BP Trails Challenge, either challenge can be completed however you wish, as long as you complete the distances.  

Swim, wheel, stroll, hike, bike, walk or run!  Complete the distances and complete the challenge!

Our accessibility promise: We are all unique with varying levels of mobility, and we want to ensure our challenges are accessible to everyone.  In the attachment above, you'll find a full list of trails on the Burin Peninsula with descriptions of each, so you know what to expect when you visit!  We've outlined Wheelchair Accessible options that are available in our communities throughout the region and have highlighted accessible trails without stairs that are mostly level with either gravel and/or board walkways.  We are breaking down the barriers and welcoming anyone and everyone to join us on this journey to challenge yourself and get out in nature, whatever that means for you.  


As always, we encourage you to join our Facebook page, BP Trails Challenge & Hike Da Boot Challenge and share your photos with our virtual community.  The love and motivational support for each other in this Facebook group has become an inspiration to many, both locally and across the country.
