We just wrapped up another great Hike it Baby 30 Challenge—the last one of 2016!
We’d like to thank our Hike it Baby Challenge Partners for the great prizes they provided for November’s HiB30. The winning participants were entered into the prize drawings simply by signing up to achieve 30 miles in 30 days OR spend 30 minutes outside 3 times per week with their families.


Hike it Baby hosts the HiB30 Challenge four times per year. Families from all over the globe come together to challenge themselves and encourage each other, forming a supportive and inspiring community. Over the course of November’s challenge, 1,124 families achieved a grand total of 20,422 miles and 904,645 minutes outside. That’s amazing!

Thank you to our Challenge Partners for helping to motivate families to get outside!

This is what our winners had to say about November’s HiB30 Challenge:

What was your reason for joining the HiB30 Challenge this November?

Olivia Scully: I like the motivation and accountability to get outside with my son, especially in the months when I would normally avoid being outside at all costs! My first HiB Challenge was in January 2016 and I got hooked. I learned that getting outside in the rain and cold isn’t bad as I thought, and we really have a blast! It’s so good for us.

Erica Colone: I was struggling to manage my life’s challenges right now and I know time in nature/walking is very good for me. I wanted just a little more reason to put aside the (never-ending) to do list and take time for me.

Did you have any challenges to overcome? If so, how did you overcome them?

Mia Bryant: Day lights savings. We had a hard time keeping up with our evening hikes so we started just spending more time outdoors in the mornings.

Daisy Carrodeguas: I am working on my Masters and I’m almost done but this challenge it was difficult to join hikes so we opted for time outside and even if I sat with my laptop doing hw. The kids got to play outside.

What is your number one piece of advice you would give to other families unsure about getting outside for 30 minutes 3 times per week OR achieving 30 miles in 30 days?

Rachel Scott: Do it! It’s fun and brings your family closer together!

Andrea Ulrey: For me, the hardest part is packing and dressing myself and my children in appropriate outside weather wear and leaving the house. However, once we are out in nature, I have never once regretted getting them out. Me and my children are so much happier after being outside!

Thank you to all who joined us for the HiB30 Challenge this November! Join us next time and be entered to win some great prizes, like the ones from our Challenge Sponsors, Ellas Wool, BabyBjörn, Stonz Wear, Doodle Pants, Lunchskins, Adventure Medical Kits, and Cozey 7. The next HiB30 Challenge begins on January 1st, so mark your calendars!
