The 100 Alabama Miles Challenge is a statewide program designed to inspire all Alabamians to kick-start an active, healthy lifestyle while exploring our beautiful state and connecting with fellow participants. We challenge all Alabamians to walk, run, hike, bike, swim, paddle, ride or roll 100 miles each year and to do so by visiting Alabama’s many wonderful parks, nature preserves, and rivers. It sounds like an impossible goal to many people, but if you get in just two miles each week, it’s very doable!
Our website is the hub for information and participation. You can use it to plan your next trip, find events, and track your miles, activity, and the places you visit. You can also create teams and compete with friends, family and co-workers who are taking the challenge. As you log your miles and visit Alabama’s amazing outdoor destinations, you will collect electronic badges along the way commemorating your accomplishments and your journey!
Our Facebook and Instagram platforms will enable you to share your experiences with other Alabamians taking the challenge and keep up on the latest news and announcements.
This program is a partnership between The University of Alabama Center for Economic Development, Alabama Trails Commission, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama, Lakeshore Foundation, Alabama Beverage Association, Jefferson County Department of Health, Governor’s Commission on Physical Fitness and Sports, AARP, Alabama Obesity Task Force, Alabama Department of Public Health, and Alabama State Parks.
