The 100 Miles in May challenge is a way to encourage healthy lifestyles and competition between Alaskans young and old. It’s also a fundraiser for Alaska Sports Hall of Fame nonprofit.
Alaskans can register by themselves or a for a team at the Healthy Futures website, and log activities throughout the month of May with a goal of 100 miles. Any physical activity counts, says Olympic Nordic skier Kikkan Randall. Randall added there’s a conversion chart available on the site, so activities like yard work count towards miles.
According to the website, people or organizations that have the most average miles per participant can win shirts, hoodies or a guest visit from an Alaskan athlete.
