The 2011 TRY ALL BY FIRE was a lot of fun, filled with great images and stories from the TRYBE who trekked 4,414 miles to our finish line by bike, kayak, foot and air via hang glider. The following are some of the images and stories from the road that made our finish line so great!

Ultra Runner Garry Rarer and his TRIBE got a ride 30 miles away in the morning and ran back using the Black Forrest Trail, Donut Hole Trail and over Hyner View into the party just in time for the party!
The Relentless Forward Motion Tribe made their entrance in grand style riding their mountain bikes as a group over hills and trails to the finish. This is a group of ultra runners who have never done a mountain bike ride before but they stretched their limits to come to the first annual TRY ALL BY FIRE!
The Lancaster Bicycle Club made the event a hoot with lots of fun people and fun creative routes taken to enjoy the weekend
Michelle Vesneske -Not only finished her 25 miles mountain bike trek to the finish line but also washed up and worked the registration finish line for the entire event… thank you Michelle.
JC Clifford – Was the heartbeat of the event, walking around meeting all the participants – soaking in the vibe, collecting autographs from each of the Trybe members and hiking from the top of Hyner View to the finishline.
We could not have imagined this event without you!
Steve and Lorri trekked 114 miles via a tandem bicycle to the finish line from Westfield, PA – via the Pine Creek Rail Trail to Jersey Shore then to Lock Haven and up Route 120 to the finish. This was Lorri’s longest bike ride ever!
Backpacking TRYBE: Amy (Hiked 50 Miles) Erin (50 miles) Jes (60) Luke (60) Noelle (40) Rosie (40) – Hiking from Blackwell, PA using Pine Creek Rail Trail to Slate Run over Black Forrest Mountain to town of Black Forrest, down Hyner Mountain Road to Hyner View and to the finish line!
Shawn and his flying friends from the Hyner View Hang Gliding Club flew overhead during the start of the event leaping off the Hyner View Mountain as they soared down to join us for the party. They also took a few participants with them for tandem flights (call us to find out more).
