6th Annual Virtual Holiday Mile ® Challenge

Stay fit and motivated during the calorie-filled holiday season by pledging to  run, walk or bike 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 ®.

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

Pledge to run, walk or bike at least one consecutive mile every day, from Thanksgiving, Thursday, November 23, 2017 through New Year's Day, January 1, 2018. 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.


 T Shirt

 Finisher's Medal



Course description:

Anywhere you want to walk/run. You can run indoors on a treadmill or outdoors. It doesn’t  matter where your Holiday Mile takes you: you just have to run/walk for 1 mile straight and check in each day.

Awards info:

Everyone who participates in the Virtual Holiday Mile will receive a custom finisher medal and an event t-shirt mailed to them after January 1st.  We will update medal image (Last years medal is shown) once we have the samples for this year's challenge!

Keeping with tradition, the color representing our 6th Anniversary is WHITE (Last year was BLUE)

It's always more fun with friends

You don't have to do it alone! Get your friends to take the pledge with you. 

SPECIAL TEAM / COMPANY AWARDS! The Holiday Challenge is designed to encourage and maintain healthy life styles and reward individuals for doing so.
