7. Challenges and Goals


Once you understand the components of a

well-balanced walking and hiking training program,

it is time to get moving. Remember, the

conditioning program included assumes that you

are new to fitness walking, casual and strenuous

hiking prior to joining iConquer. If you are a seasoned

runner or regular hiker, then use the information here

as a supplement to your current routine. 


As an iConquer participant, it is your duty to complete

a comprehensive self-evaluation form to decide which

portions of this program best suit you. Keep in mind

that on each hike there are multiple distances and

levels of difficulties from which to choose. You can

select the one that best fits your goals.


We want to ensure we get you on the correct team

and the information you provide us in your initial

and follow up forms is key. So whatever your goal,

whether it be hiking far and fast, a more casual

paced and interpretive hike, to simply hike with

your choice of friends, use this guide as a starting point

and begin training at a level that is best for you.

Please remember, there are NO EASY trails during our hike.


NOTE: At the midpoint of your training program, you will be asked to complete a progress survey. The information you provide will allow us to modify the website content so that it caters to your hiking ability, fitness level and interests.


The physical demands of hiking the Grand Canyon are in stark contrast to those found in fitness walking or hiking on relatively flat terrain. We are providing you with detailed trail description for our hike, so please read them so that you can train wisely and enjoy your entire adventure. 


Remember, strong knees, proper socks and well-fitting boots are a must.
