Seek the Peak 2013, our 13th annual hike-a-thon, kicks off this coming Friday, July 19th!

Seek the Peak is our largest fundraiser, so why not hike for a great cause?

If you have not registered yet, you are not too late! Go here, and you can register yourself, or even as part of a team. There’s still plenty of time to fundraise!

The event starts on Friday afternoon with registration at the Weather Discovery Center (WDC) in North Conway. After you register, head on up to the kick-off party, which commences at 5PM in the WDC museum. There will be food and beverages served, and you can check out our free interactive exhibits in the museum.

On Saturday, the event kicks into full swing. After hiking up to the summit via the trail of your choosing, stop in and receive a complimentary tour of the summit weather station! You’ll get an awesome behind-the-scenes look at the hard work the summit crew does to keep the weather data flowing!

Once you hike back down, head on over to the after party at the base of the Mt. Washington Auto Road, which kicks off at 4PM. There will be live music, giveaways, and an all-you-can-eat dinner, while you mingle with your fellow hikers and supporters!

Check out for information on prizes, hiker resources, a complete schedule of events, a link to purchase after party tickets, and more FAQ’s.

And don’t forget, if you wish to participate and you haven’t registered yet, head on over to this link!
