Deadline to register is January 15th.

We will use the virtual mission app for tracking the progress.  We will have a facebook support group as well as a strava group.

This is a year long hard challenge.  We will start on January 1, 2021.  The goal will be to cover the entire Appalachian Trail 2,190 miles by New Years Eve 2021.  

You can run, walk, hike, cycle or swim this challenge and earn rewards throughout the year.

You can log your miles from anywhere at anytime.

You can also make teams of 3 to help cover the distance! Everyone will sign up individually and receive the same goodies along the way.  Team names will be put together the first week of the challenge through the app.  If every team runs an equal number of miles that would be 730 miles each through the year.  However, one teammate may run more than the others as well.  The goal is for the 3 members to complete the total distance of 2190.

This is a 12 month challenge to keep us motivated all year. It will require 6 miles a day or 42 miles per week for an entire year. Your admins are committed to encouraging our running community!

The Appalachian National Scenic Trail, generally known as the Appalachian Trail or simply the A.T., is a marked hiking trail in the Eastern United States extending between Springer Mountain in Georgia and Mount Katahdin in Maine.
