Terrain Scouts - Your excuse to spend more time on the trails

The Terrain Scouts challenge platform is a new type of activity challenge based upon the completion of specific routes or trails within a community. Completely customizable to anywhere in the world, Terrain Scouts offers the unique opportunity for people to get out, discover, and experience the selected trails. It gamifies your local trails to drive people to new locations, deliver unique messaging, and interact with their local trail community and supporting businesses. 

Summer or winter, the challenges are designed for participants to rediscover their favorite trails, learn about new or lesser-known trails, push their limits, and recreate locally.

Choose your trails and the duration of time needed for registration and the challenge. It's built for your needs!

The Terrain Scouts platform is fully customizable to fit your brand's look and feel including imagery, logos, colors, and fonts, both on the challenge pages and in emails. 

Once registered, particpants connect to one of the many activity tracking devices or apps that are offered and then hit the trails, it's that simple! 

Engage With Your Trail Community - Extended and Often
