Hike With Pat (#HikeWithPat) is an initiative by Pat onBrands aimed at getting people to start living an active and a healthy lifestyle through hiking. The hikes are hosted every last or first Saturday of the month. The people who #HikeWithPat are dynamic individuals who share a common interest of being active and enjoy taking time off from the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg.

If you’ve been looking to be part of a hiking community look no further than #HikeWithPat.  

Here’s why…

1. It is better than hiking alone

Hiking is better done in a group. When the hike gets tough there are people who will encourage you to soldier on. Furthermore, hiking in a group provides greater safety especially in remote areas and minimises the possibilities of getting lost. If you get injured there will be people who can offer aid.

2. Great for networking

#HikeWithPat attracts people with various backgrounds, from university students to professionals and entreprenuers. Unlike formal networking events, during the hike people are more relaxed and open-minded. This therefore presents you with the opportunity  to engage with new people and exchange contacts.

3. Not based at a single hiking spot

There is no base for #HikeWithPat. Every hike takes place at a different hiking spot which means will get exposed to different hiking spots in Johannesburg and surrounding areas.

4. Time out

The majority of people who stay in a city rarely get the opportunity to have a workout outdoors and get in touch with nature. Hiking provides the opportunity to reconnect with nature and get some fresh air whilst burning some calories.

5. You don’t have to be fit

There’s no level of fitness you need to be at to #HikeWithPat, whether you are starting your fitness journey or you are a fitness bunny. You can hike at your own pace whilst having a good chat with fellow hikers or embracing nature. At the end of the hike, you will however feel fitter as hiking strengthens your core and works on your legs.

6. It is Flexible

There is no fixed membership for #HikeWithPat. Therefore, you don’t have to attend every single hike. You only attend the hikes that are most convenient for you.
