On Friday, April 2 at 7 p.m. at the Hooker-Dunham Theater at 139 Main Street in Brattleboro, author John Illig will discuss his 8,000 mile-plus thru-hikes of the Appalachian Trail, the Continental Divide Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail.
Illig, who has published three books on the trials and tribulations of the long-distance trails, will offer insights into the motivations and the life of a thru-hiker.
Illig, who has also raced in triathlons, marathons and ultra-marathons and is Middlebury College's colorful squash coach, will offer an evening of exciting slides and stories from Triple Crown Trilogy, the three-book series he wrote about his adventures on the three long-distance trails.
The lecture is sponsored by the Brattleboro section of the Green Mountain Club. The cost is $5 and all proceeds will support the Long Trail, Vermont's 270-mile Footpath in the Wilderness.
