Ready for an adventure? No planes, trains or automobiles allowed on this trip. We want to see how far you can go on foot! You'll be embarking on a 30-day journey, so grab your Garmin and log your miles for our Month of Miles challenge, which takes off June 1.
The goal of Month of Miles is twofold: to help you support your local Moms on the Run franchise plus encourage you to log distance every day. (If your local franchise is not participating, or you are not affiliated with a local franchise, please register with our national team.)
This challenge is totally personal: Walk, jog, intervals and runs all count toward your goal. Even if you're usually a runner, walking is an important part of success in this challenge and is encouraged as a safe way to increase mileage. Start right where you’re at and work up from there. It could be .5 miles for your first day, but the point is to make sure to log something. Try to increase your overall distance each week by 10 percent. Remember, your only competition is you! However, to keep it motivating, we'll add in some extra fun scavenger hunts and other challenges.
While your itinerary is up to you, we want to see where we can go as one #MOTRstrong team. So, we're going to track our group journey. Fancy a weekend tour to wine country? From Denver, that's 1,218 miles. Or, maybe we want to travel from Minneapolis to play some golf on Hilton Head Island. That's approximately 1,357 miles. Or, perhaps we'll trek from Eau Claire, WI to visit Chip and Joanna in Waco, TX: 1,134 miles. How far will we go?
