Welcome to #365MileChallenge!

What is the #365 Mile Challenge?

The 365 Mile Challenge is a group with a goal: to get outdoors and move 1 mile a day during 2018. 

Will you join us?

We want to complete 365 self-propelled miles in 2018...with YOU!

As outdoor bloggers and busy mothers, we’ve learned firsthand the benefits of spending time outdoors every single day. We know that there’s joy in just taking a few minutes every day to walk, run, cycle, snowshoe, or cross-country ski but sometimes we need a little nudge getting out the door.

If you want to know the truth...those precious minutes keep us sane.

We think that small distances done over a long period of time also have massive results. They create healthy habits and build self-discipline and the simple act of getting outdoors to move every single day is beneficial to the mind, body, and soul.

We’re also believers in the power of community.

We know that a supportive group of friends, even friends met online can make a huge difference in how motivated we are to accomplish a goal. And when you're on a journey together it's sometimes good to be rewarded.

Here’s What You Get For Joining

  • A #365milechallenge sticker (shipped only to the U.S. or Canada)
  • Entry into a private, supportive and fun facebook group just for 365 Mile Challenge participants.
  • Exclusive discounts on outdoor clothing and gear found only for members of the group.
  • Opportunity to enter prize package drawings for outdoor clothing, gear, and swag.
  • Motivation and support to get out there and conquer 365 miles.
  • Automatic entry into a mega big prize package just for 365-mile challenge finishers if you complete your 365 miles before midnight (MST) on December 31, 2018.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the challenge run?

January 1, 2018- December 31st 2018.

Regisration is open December 1, 2017 - January 31, 2018. It's best if you can start it on New Year's Day with us so you have the entire 365 days to complete your mileage.

We will have a second regisration window open in spring 2018 for those late to the game. Totally still possible to get your miles in especially if you plan to be out a lot in the summer. If you'd like to be notified when that opens up, shoot us an email and we'll get you on the list!

How Much Does it Cost?

December 1-20, 2017 (early bird): $20

December 21, 2017 - January 31, 2018: $25

Why do you have to pay to play?

Because when we have a little “skin-in-the-game” we’re more likely to reach our goals.

Your contribution will go to support this program. Think of it like a race entry fee, only it’s for a race that lasts all year long. Plus, cheaper than most race entry fees and you get to run/hike/bike/swim/ski at your own pace and on your own turf.

How do I record my mileage?

Since everyone uses different tracking tools (Endomondo, Strava, Suunto, Garmin, FitBit, Jawbone, Map My Run, we ask that you keep track of your own mileage in whatever way you prefer. Then at the end of December, we’ll ask you to add them all up and give us a screenshot or photo of your annual mileage. If you completed 365 “self-propelled” miles during the year you’ll be entered to win a mega giveaway prize.

If you're not tech-savvy we have a tracker that you can print & fill out. It's available in our facebook group.

Is this challenge open to everyone, regardless of where we live?

Yes, we welcome our international friends to participate! Some giveaway prizes might just be for U.S. or North American residents due to shipping costs, but you’re more than welcome to join us in our private facebook page and we’ll even convert your kilometers to miles for you!

What kind of miles can I log?

Any activity that gets your legs moving and your heart pumping. For example, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing count. But snowmobiling doesn’t. Running, hiking, and mountain biking count. But 4-wheeling doesn’t. When in doubt come up on our facebook group page and we can chat about it there. The whole goal here is to get our bodies moving (preferably outdoors, of course!).

Who is sponsoring this event? What kind of giveaway items and discounts can we expect? How often will you give clothing and gear away?

In 2017 we gave away over $8,000 worth of prizes to 365 Mile Challenge participants and partnered with some of the biggest brands in the industry. From bikes, to daypacks, and clothing to camping gear. Our 2018 sponsors are getting lined up right now but participants can expect the same opportunities. 

Can I do this as a family? Is there an age limit to participate?

We love our families and they’ll be joining us for the challenge and we’d encourage you to bring your spouse, children, parents, aunts, uncles and favorite pets along for the ride. To be officially registered in the challenge and allowed entry into our private facebook group and available for giveaway prizes they’ll need to join too.

What do I get if I complete 365 miles?

Insane bragging rights! We’ll think that you’re awesome too. You'll receive a 2018 patch, and be entered to win a mega-big giveaway prize just for those who complete the 365 miles.

We'll also have a special golden patch for those that double their miles (or more!).

Registration is open
