The City of Phoenix has a long standing tradition of preserving open spaces for use as municipal parks since 1924. Featuring over 30,000 acres of desert parks and preserves, The Phoenix Mountain Preserves are icons that define the image of the City of Phoenix and the quality of life for all its citizens. To highlight the vast quantity of desert parks and preserves in Phoenix the Phoenix Summit Challenge fundraiser was created in 2005. This year we will welcome 800 hikers of all ages and abilities to climb the Summits of Phoenix! Join us for the Seven Summit Challenge (26 miles), the Phoenix Five (19 miles), the Phoenix Four (16 miles) or the All Access Challenge, and challenge your mind and spirit in this non competitive day of hiking.
Participating in the Phoenix Summit Challenge is not only fun, but rewarding, too. Participants are thanked for their efforts with awesome freebies, the U Rock Festival, dinner, slideshow of the event, and thousands of dollars in prize giveaways. It's easy to see PSC has such a great following and sells out each year. So sign up and know that you are helping out the preserves you love.
Fee payable at registration is $75
After you've successfully signed up, please RSVP here to let us know, adding which "event" you will be doing: 7, 5, or 4 summits.
Please note that historically this event fills up quickly, so don't procrastinate!!!
