The holiday season is a health and fitness nightmare. On top of that we have been dealing with a pandemic since March. From gym closings, events cancellations, parties, to cookies and time spent travelling to visit loved ones, it can feel impossible to stay on top of your fitness goals...but it doesn't have to be that way.

Holiday Mile - Virtual Holiday Streak

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:

FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITY: While this event is designed to keep you accountable and help maintain your fitness during the holiday season (or prepare you for your New Year's resolutions), you take it a step further by keeping with the spirit of the holidays and making your pledge a charitable fundraiser.

Disappointed! Terrible directions and zero support!

The instructions are not clear at all as to what to expect from this challenge. It is very hard to keep up with and also hard to navigate how to track your progress. I’m not sure if I’m doing anything right or if anything has been recorded that I think I put in under myself and my daughter. It’s a virtual mess! Very disappointed and NO desire to continue...

Thanks for a great way to end a crummy year.

My hubby and I challenged ourselves and each other. This is the 1st time ever I am not starting the new year on a diet to lose the weight I gained during the holidays.

If possible would like to see a Strava group set up for this. It would be easier to log miles and less likely to forget. I realize the challenge is not everyone is on Strava.

Review On:
Really great at keeping me motivated through the holday season!

The Good: The holiday mile is really awesome for people that are needing a little push to get out and get a workout in. Although the idea is to get a mile in, the program is great for those looking to get in some serious mileage. For me, the hardest thing about getting a workout in is getting out the door. During the holiday mile, I may have dreaded going out to walk in the cold, but I did it anyways. I dont think I've been this active since college, and I attribute my activity the past month to the holiday mile. Areas of Improvement: Easier way of submitting miles. Weighting biking, running, swimming, etc differently and perhaps doing a point system for ranking rather than miles based.

Holiday Mile

Logging miles was more challenging this year, because of not being able to edit the date. I just didn't get to the site every day. But it's a great challenge to keep me moving throughout the holiday season. Thanks.

Good method for managing weight over the holidays. Enjoyed postings on Facebook and abiloty to track my progress against all participants. Encouraged me to set personal benchmarks (top quartile), and work harder to get there, and stay there.
