Half-HAM Registration Opens 7/18/2023

The 2023 Half-HAM (Hike Across Maryland), a 21-mile hike covering half of the Maryland section of the Appalachian Trail, will take place on September 30, 2023. This hike. Which is open to Mountain Club of Maryland members only, will start at Pen Mar Park and end at Washington Monument State Park. Registration will open on July 18, 2023 at 10:30 AM, and there will only be a maximum of 75 participants–so if you are interested, we encourage you to sign up early.

This hike is open to MCM members only, so email invitations are being mailed directly to all members. If you know someone who would like to register and didn’t receive an email, please have them contact HAM@mcomd.org and a personal invite email will be sent to them. If you know someone who would like to participate and is not a member, encourage them to become a member and then contact us at the above email address.

Events like this take a lot of volunteer effort to organize and manage. For those of you who are interested in volunteering to help run the HAM: we will be sending a separate announcement later about how to volunteer.
