What we're about
Gateway Endurance is about more than hiking. This group is about physical activity. If there is an event that pertains to the indoors or outdoors that has you up and moving then that is what we are going for. The Endurance part of it is to challenge ourselves and see how far we can go before dropping to the ground. :D My idea is to post up to 3 events (oh yeah!) in 1 day. This would be making up our own mini triathlon. Example: Hiking, Biking, and Kayaking. The idea is to sign up for all 3 events and have a fun filled day! In any event......more than 1 activity in a day, can only be done, depending on how much daylight we have. And yes, we will be having hikes of 14 miles minimum if that is the only posting! I really like 20+ milers.
These hikes require some amount of coordination, for transportation, supply drops, etc. Therefore, signing up for a hike is a commitment - late drops could cause the event to be cancelled.
For a good mix of hikes, you might check out:

Beyond The Trail: http://www.meetup.com/Beyond-the-Trail/
These will be strenuous events. We'll be moving fast and hard. So, no kids, no dogs, no +1.
Let's get out there and have fun!
