About the Oboz Trail Experience
Oboz Footwear and Public Lands are inviting you to complete as many of Charlottesville's selected trails as you can in the month of October. This Experience is designed for you to re-discover your favorite trails, learn about new or lesser-known trails, push your limits, and recreate locally! You’ll also have the chance to compete against local legends, your peers, or just yourself if that’s more your style.
The Oboz Trail Experience: Charlottesville is open to hikers, walkers, runners, and those utilizing mobility assistance devices.
The Oboz Trail Experience runs from October 1 to October 31st. All participants will receive various swag from Oboz Footwear, Public Lands, and other supporting partners. Unlock other rewards by completing Promoted Trails and everyone who completes even just one trail will be entered to win one of five pairs of Oboz shoes at the end of the Experience.

About the Unity Blaze
At the center of the Black Folks Camp Too logo is the Unity Blaze, a campfire symbol created by Black Folks Camp Too that promotes Unity in the outdoor community and beyond. The Unity Blaze means Treat Everyone, Everywhere, Equally. Your race, age, or gender does not matter. We all have something to say around the proverbial campfire.
As part of the Oboz Trail Experience, you will find 2 trails with very special Unity Blaze rewards for completion. Consider inviting new and diverse friends to join you on this trail and tag your photos with #unityblaze.
