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 2019. 

Will you join us?

We want to complete 365 self-propelled miles in 2019...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.

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the challenge run?

January 1, 2019- December 31st 2019.

How Much Does it Cost?

We have three different registration levels for 2019 depending on your desired invovlement & swag choices. We've also added an in-house physical trainer who will answer questions and have bi-monthly video training on relevant topics. 

Scout: $35

Adventurer: $50

Pathfinder: $65

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, its 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 the end-of-year prize package.

If you're not tech-savvy we have a tracker that you can print & fill out. You'll be sent one with your welcome packet and its available for download 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 2018 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 2019 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. If you are an Adventurer or a Pathfinder, once you fill out the finisher's form we'll send you a handy-dandy certificate and a patch.

Everyone who finishes will also be entered to win the end of year giveaway prize just for those who complete the 365 miles.

We'll also have a special patches for those that double or even triple their miles!
