Started in 2007, Kahtoola Uphill is a fun, local mountain race designed to encourage human-powered movement that takes place on the San Francisco Peaks overlooking our company headquarters in Flagstaff, AZ. The idea was simple: climb a mountain. Initially we had 25 people, mostly friends of Kahtoola. Today, we’ve solidified three courses with roughly 300 participants a year, and made it an evening event and community celebration.

FRIENDS OF CAMP COLTON

Several years ago, Kahtoola teamed up with local nonprofit Friends of Camp Colton in support of Camp Colton, a youth environmental education program in Flagstaff. The event turned into a fundraiser, with 100% of profits going directly to Camp Colton and into a scholarship that allows low-income students to attend the camp. In the past decade Kahtoola Uphill has raised more than $200,000, a portion of which, in 2017, helped fund two new cabins that are sustainable, handicap accessible, and benefit special-needs students.
