What we're about

Everyone ONE is Welcome Here!

Hiking has become a hobby and a passion! I have been hiking around OC, LA, and other areas; however, I wanted to hike near my work and home due to busy and demanding schedule from work and personal life. I thought, hummm, it would be nice to have a hiking group close to my home and work; thus begin my search and found that there are hardly any hiking groups within 10 mile radius around Chino Hills, a beautiful sub-urban city I now reside.

Well, thus begin my journey to startup a new meetup for those people who live in and around Chino Hills and Surrounding Areas. I believe hiking is one of the best ways to keep up with your health, meet new friends, and have fun while doing it. What more can you ask for! I am hoping this hiking Meetup will grow to become an oasis for those people like me who love outdoors....

I love it when I can get outdoors and feel the cool breeze on my skin, see the open sky along with beautiful scenery, and meet new people while having enjoyable and meaningful conversations that often bring surprises from many different perspectives. I hope many of you will join and build this Meetup for benefit of all.

Bon Voyage for Friendship, Fun, and Healthy Living through Hikes!

Spartan 5K @ Castaic Lake!

Needs a location

"It's not exercise. It isTRAINING...for your life"

Challenge yourself and train for a Spartan race.
Spartan combines running with obstacle courses (monkey bars, bucket carry, barb wire crawl, etc). It will test your upper body, lower body, your mind for sure, and you will come out at the end with an AMAZING medal around your neck. You'll love the camaraderie. You'll love becoming the BEST version of yourself.

Spartan is the great equalizer. It doesn't matter your age, your weight, your social and economic background. We all do the same course. We all finish...well 99% finishes, haha.

If you commit to a goal, you are more likely to do it if you:
1. Announce and share it with others
2. Do it with others to stay accountable

Here's the schedule:
* July 23 (5k @ Angels Stadium in Anaheim)
* Oct. 22 (13k @ Tejon Ranch in Lebec, CA)
* Dec. 10 (5k @ Castaic Lake)
* Jan. 28, 2023 (10k @ Glen Helen Pavilion in San Bernardino)
* April 15, 2023 (5k @ Fox Raceway in Pala, San Diego)
