100 Alabama Miles Challenge Season 2021 Kick off

Read Time 1 Minutes

The University of Alabama Center for Economic Development and its partners will kick off the 2021 season of the 100 Alabama Miles Challenge on April 24. The 100 Alabama Miles Challenge is a statewide public program designed to inspire all Alabamians to be active, explore, and connect with others by getting 100 miles of physical activity each year. Participants can walk, run, hike, bike, swim, paddle, ride, or roll to their 100-mile goal anywhere. Go visit Alabama state parks, nature preserves and rivers with friends and family!

While the pandemic prevents the usual gatherings to celebrate the annual season kickoff, organizers encourage people to register at 100alabamamiles.org, visit a trail on their own and share their experiences via social media using the hashtag #100ALMiles. As participants log their miles on the website, they earn electronic badges for milestones they reach and places they visit. They can even create teams and compete with others.

The kickoff coincides with the Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s Celebrate Trails Day, an annual spring celebration of the nation’s trails and trail systems. Organizers encourage participants to also register for Celebrate Trails Day at www.railstotrails.org/experience-trails/celebrate-trails/, where the first 150 to RSVP will earn great prizes from program sponsors.

Partners in developing and sustaining the program include the Alabama Trails Commission, Alabama Trails Foundation, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama, Lakeshore Foundation, Governor’s Commission on Physical Fitness and Sports, Jefferson County Department of Health, AARP, Alabama Department of Public Health and the Alabama Obesity Task Force.
