Congrats to These 2019 SOBO Finishers

To all the late-season SOBOs out there, we salute you. You are the fearless ones who go against the grain and fight to finish what you set out to do. Whether it is your first thru, or you’ve added another notch to your long-distance-backpacking belt, your accomplishment deserves to be celebrated. We’ll do our part by showcasing all the stragglers, no matter when you cross the finish line.

If you’re a SOBO who hasn’t already submitted a photo for the finishers’ roundups, we want to feature you. Send your finish photo along with trail name, start date, finish date, and any other relevant info to [email protected] and we will include it in our roundup.

“(We) completed our thru-hike of the PCT on November 19 in exactly five months. We started on June 19 at Cascade Locks and hiked into Manning Park, went back down to Cascade Locks, and completed the rest SOBO. We did the AT in 2007 and will do the CDT next year after a few months in South America.”
