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


TAKE THE 7th ANNUAL NATIONAL CHALLENGE! Stay fit and motivated during the calorie-filled holiday season by pledging to run/walk 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!

The Holiday Mile®


More than just a holiday fitness challenge!


Pledge to run, walk or bike at least one consecutive mile every day, from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Day. 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.
