The Warrior 150 is a 5 segment hike totaling 150 Kilometers that will end on Veterans Day 2017, with a final 5 mile hike from Downtown Dayton to the Dayton VA Medical Center. Hikers will choose a minimum of 4 of the 5 Warrior 150 Challenge identified hikes to complete the Warrior 150 Challenge. Join the Dayton Hikers Association in one, or all of these scheduled 5 hiking segments. It is a great way to get some exercise while showing you care about our Veterans and the Dayton VA Medical Center.
