7th Annual Holiday Mile ® Challenge

Thanksgiving to New Year's…. it's a weight gain nightmare, but it doesn't have to be! 

CHALLENGE: Stay fit and motivated during the calorie-filled holiday season by pledging to run, walk, bike or swim at least one mile every day, from Thanksgiving until New Year's Day... and then your New Year's resolutions take over! 

We call this The Holiday Mile ®. Open to Individuals and Teams!

Registration includes a Finisher's Medal, T-Shirt, and chance to win prizes!

You’ll find that once you get started, there will be days when you want to go farther—and then there will be days when one mile is enough (or more than enough). Either way, you'll get pulled in—you won't want to break your pledge, even if that means getting up super-early before a long car ride to squeeze in your mile. Be smart: pledge to run/walk “The Holiday Mile”® and you'll emerge from the holiday season unscathed, and maybe even fitter than you were before.

Weekly winners announced on our Facebook Page

We will also list winners on our daily check in page.
