A program encouraging Alabamians to reach 100 miles of physical activity during 2020 is underway, even if the official kickoff had to be postponed because of health concerns.

Known as the 100 Alabama Miles Challenge, and sponsored by the University of Alabama Center for Economic Development and its partners, the program urges activity and exploration.

Participants can walk, run, hike, bike, swim, paddle, ride or roll to their 100-mile goal, and while they can participate at home or in their neighborhood — and perhaps eventually at their favorite gym — the program encourages them to also visit Alabama’s parks, nature preserves and rivers. Since the program’s launch in 2018, participants have logged more than 100,000 miles.
