Ice Age Trail Challenge
Introducing our new Physical Education challenge for October 2020! More than 12,000 years ago, an immense glacial ice flow sculpted a landscape of remarkable beauty across Wisconsin. As the glacier retreated, it left behind a variety of unique landscape features. These glacial remnants are now considered among the world’s finest examples of how continental glaciation sculpts our planet.
The Ice Age National Scenic Trail is a thousand-mile footpath highlighting these landscape features as it travels through some of the state’s most beautiful natural areas. The Trail is entirely within Wisconsin and is one of only eleven National Scenic Trails.
The goal of the Ice Age Trail Virtual Challenge is to offer students, families, and staff the challenge of hiking, running, or walking the Ice Age Trail and learning about safe hiking practices, “Leave no Trace,” Glacial activity in Wisconsin, and the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of being in nature. The Virtual Ice Age Trail Challenge also has mini-challenges along the way.
Starting October 5th, Horning, Butler, Les Paul, and STEM will compete against each other and log miles. Family and staff participation is highly encouraged.
There is also another opportunity for families to participate in the Mammoth Hike Challenge sponsored by the Ice Age Trail Alliance. See the introductory video and sign-up details below. This challenge is free. Students/Families who participate will receive a certificate and patch.
