Chicago’s Biggest Mappy Hour Event Yet!

Mappy Hour x The North Face – Chicago Explore More Challenge Launch Party

We launched The Chicago Explore More Challenge in partnership with The North Face last week – and hot dang, are outdoorsy Chicagoans stoked!

Over 50 people showed up to learn about the challenge and to hang out with professional climber and North Face athlete Cedar Wright. Cedar put on an entertaining, goofy and inspirational presentation about his adventures climbing all 7 continents. The theme focused on (unbelievable) exploration, friendship on the road, and following his heart in his passion for climbing.

The Chicago Explore More Challenge, which runs through August 24, 2020, features 10 outdoor adventures. The goal: go adventure, log your completed challenges, and reach 60 points or complete them all for free prizes from The North Face and Mappy Hour.

It’s always amazing to see outdoor lovers in Chicago come out of the woodwork for our Mappy Hour events, including local outdoor groups like: Adventures Accessed, the Chicago Chapter of the American Alpine Club, the Chicago Mountaineering Club, the Beta Babes from Brooklyn Boulders

Revolution Brewing Mappy Hour

Huge thanks to our beer sponsor, Revolution Brewing, free pizza from Dimo’s Pizza (next door to the The North Face’s Wicker Park location) and of course, our pals, The North Face.

Plus, an extra special shout out to one Mappy Hour attendee who drove 2.5 hours from Illinois State University to come to our Explore More Challenge launch event. (Talk about commitment!)


See you at our next event: November 21, 2019 – 6:30pm at The North Face Store (in Wicker Park).
