About the Oboz Trail Experience
Oboz Footwear, Whole Earth Provision Co. and Hill Country Conservancy are inviting you to complete as many of Austin's selected trails as you can in one month. This Experience is designed for you to re-discover your favorite trails, learn about new or lesser-known trails, push your limits, and recreate locally! You’ll also have the chance to compete against local legends, your peers, or yourself if that’s more your style.
The Oboz Trail Experience: Austin is open to walkers, hikers, runners, and ADA mobility devices. It’s free to register and sign-up is easy.
Registration opens September 1st, with the Experience running from October 1st to October 31st. All participants will receive various swag from Oboz Footwear, Whole Earth Provision Co. and Hill Country Conservancy. Unlock other rewards by completing Promoted Trails and everyone who completes even just one trail will be entered to win one of five pairs of Oboz shoes at the end of the Experience! The more trails you complete, the more entries you'll receive!
