Big Butte Challenge

Proof of Completion Rules

Big Butte Challenge Proof of Completion Rules

We aren’t checking everyone’s proof of completion because that would be an administrative nightmare. However, in order to be eligible for special prizes, we may ask to see proof that you’ve completed each of the Buttes, so it’s a good idea to keep that handy.

“Proof” can be:

  • GPX file or activity recording on an app like Strava
  • A picture of you cheesin’ at the top

If you forget to grab hard proof don’t stress – you can still mark the Butte complete and we’ll count it. We trust ya! The main point of this challenge is to HAVE FUN, so if you skip Buttes you’re only cheating yourself 😉
