Welcome to AZ Bootleg 100!

Our mission is simple: Get on trail. Have fun. Repeat.

We’re an inclusive community of like-minded adventurers, hikers, and trail runners. We love the outdoors and want to explore all that Arizona has to offer!

Push yourself this winter: Join us from December 1 through March 10th as we each hike or run 100 miles* in 100 days on any trail in Arizona.

Want to meet some rad new people? Join us for group hikes and/or trail runs (offered at varying difficulties). Prefer your own company? Complete the challenge entirely on your own time.

Track your progress using our tracking software, and see your progress and that of your fellow participants throughout the challenge. Be as competitive — or not — as you want!

Read Why we do what we do:

My 1st year becoming a Bootlegger helped save my mental health. I was going through a divorce and we were in the middle of an epidemic. These people that didn’t even know we (yet) helped raise me up, one step in front of the other is a perfect description. Each year is better with this group of outstanding people. I don’t even remember how i found the group, but thankful on the daily. JOIN US!

This will be my 4th year participating in Bootleg, and as long as you keep hosting, I will keep coming back! For me it started as a way to get outside more and be more active. But between the group hikes and social events I have made some life long friends who make this challenge even it also has pulled me out of a very dark time, and for that I am forever grateful!

I’ve been a Bootlegger for the past 2 years…last year was cool because my wife and I did it together and it was a badass way to spend time together!
