_The 2022 Holiday Mile:
The Holiday Mile is designed to help you stay fit and motivated during the calorie-filled holiday season by moving your body for at least one mile straight, every day from Thanksgiving to New Year's Day. You can run, walk, paddle, bike or swim your mile each day, and the event is open to Individuals and Teams.
Moving your body at least one consecutive mile each day is just a small part of the Holiday Mile. To really get engaged, we encourage participants to SHOW YOUR HOLIDAY SPIRIT by participating in our weekly challenges:
