Go North 9er Challenge

It wasn’t until about June that I found out about the Go North 9er challenge. I was shocked that I didn’t know about this already. It started in May of this year and challenges hikers to summit 9 peaks between Vermont and New Hampshire. I had already done many of them, but didn’t count as the challenge started May 2020. So I’ve set out to redo the ones I've done and conquer the ones I haven’t.

Start out by visiting the Go North 9er Challenge website and register for the challenge. At the end of the challenge you receive a certificate, sticker and patch so everyone will know you had it in you to complete all 9 peaks. Your name will also be added to the Go North 9er member roster. Start your adventure by clicking here. Don't forget to take a selfie at each summit :)
