Guaranteed good times!

How It Works
Come visit us at the store to register. Once you’ve registered, you can begin the hikes. At the designated spot on each hike, take a photo with a date and time stamp (or take a photo of you and your watch) and send it to us at questfor10@mtwaddingtons.com. Please include the name of the hike and the date and time you reached the destination (i.e. the summit or lake). Once you’ve completed all the hikes, we’ll calculate the time it took you to complete the list and you’ll be entered into different prize draws. The clock starts when you summit your first hike, and ends when you summit your last!

Cost
The entry fee is $30. Includes your meal and beverage at the After Party, and the chance to win prizes! A portion of your entry will go to the Chilliwack Park Society to build and maintain our local trails.

Times to Beat

Think you have what it takes to be top dog? Here’s some past results to consider:

In 2017 the Quest for 10 was completed in an impressive 76 hrs and 18 min! In 2016, the Quest for 10 was completed in 50 hours and 39 minutes.

Each year the list of hikes changes, so you will need to come up with the best route to get them done efficiently. You do not have to do the hikes in the order we have listed. Happy planning!
