My best guess? 50% aged 30 or younger, 20% 30 to 45 and 30% age 45 or older.

I'm hiking this year and I'm forty:eek:...still hard to admit that....
I've noticed my legs are 40 now too! My thinking is still very much that of an 8 or 9 yr old:cool: okay more like 21 but my legs keep telling me to go to hell whenever I try to convince them that a couple more miles is doable before dark.

Of the 100 or so I saw in four days out grilling cheeseburgers at Tray Gap, The vast majority were 30 and under. there were 8-10 over 50 and a couple in their 40s.

I'm not thruhiking but I voted on behalf of a young thruhiker I know (he recently entered NC) who is not on WB.

You realize your age groupings all overlap, right?

05-27-2009, 08:48
You need another choice for those not hiking but want to see the results. OK ignore this, just noticed the "view results" button. Never noticed that before.
