The 113-Mile Club began in the 1980s, when RATC maintained 113 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Due to relocations and other changes, our section is now a little over 120 miles long, but we have kept the historic name and patch.
The 113-Mile Club recognizes RATC members who have hiked our entire section. To receive the award, a specially designed patch, the hiker must:
- Be an RATC member at the time they hiked each segment of the trail.
- Complete all 120 miles. Hikes can be done on your own or on a scheduled club hike. There is no time limit to the program.
- Document and mail or email your completion, Please download a section chart here. As with AT thru-hiking, the honor system applies. As you complete each segment, check it off. When completed, mail to: RATC, PO Box 12282, Roanoke VA 24024-2282 or email us at RoanokeATC@gmail.com. We will send you a RATC 113-Mile patch.
One patch is given for no charge to each hiker who completes the 120 miles, any additional the hiker would like can be purchased here.Hikers are listed in the order in which they complete the patch with the most current on the top of the list.
