2016 Hike-a-Thon Preview

That’s right folks, this Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. is the 10th annual Hike-a-Thon Plus event! If you’re looking for a chance to get outside and enjoy the beautiful fall weather, this is a perfect opportunity.

The Hike-a-Thon, held rain or shine, is a great way to explore the Miami University Natural Areas. They provide maps and encourage people with any level of hiking experience to check out the 1-, 3-, or 5-mile loops that begin in that area. Plus, the event is free and no registration is required! Hikers who hike at least 3 miles are eligible for a free t-shirt, while supplies last.

In addition to the hiking, there are always fun community booths who have snacks, wildlife demonstrations, music, and more, most of which is free. This event is one of the top environmental events in our area, so get out there and have a great time!

Getting there:

The event is held at 4824 Oxford Trenton Rd, Oxford, OH 45056. If you’re coming from campus, turn east onto Rt. 73 between Cook Field and Bachelor Hall. The event will be on your left, about a mile from Cook Field. There will be signage on the day of the event.

GreenHawks Media

GreenHawks Media is Miami University’s first environmental publication. Our goal is to unite green initiatives on campus and in the community. We hope to make a difference in a journalistic fashion by spreading news and information as well as educating our readers. We would like to present GreenHawks Media as a central place for groups and individuals to share their ideas, concerns, and initiatives. Individually and in small groups, efforts are made to make a difference and promote change. While one person may have a concern, another is researching it and needs assistance. While one initiative is being made in a science department, a similar idea is being discussed in a local business. GreenHawks Media provides the opportunity for shared visions to come together. We are journalists, writers, photographers, and scientists. We are students. We are motivated to use media to contribute to the change that our generation needs to make in order to protect and understand the planet we call home.
