The 10,000 Mile Parkway Challenge – Since we had such an overwhelming response and surpassed 10,000 miles in October we decided to extend the Challenge. How many miles can we achieve by the end of the year, December 31, 2020? 100,000 miles? Let’s keep going! Tell your friends to join the fun!

This year looks different than we are used to without all our favorite races. But we know y’all are still out there on the Parkway logging miles and challenging yourself in keeping fit or race ready. It’s time to put those miles to good use, and show how important the Parkway is to you! We are hosting a FREE virtual challenge, and would love to have you join in the festivities.

The American River Parkway Foundation’s 10,000 Mile Parkway Challenge was created to bring our Sacramento community members together (in spirit) to reach a collective goal of 10,000 miles of activity logged in a month, and to show how important the American River Parkway is to our community. Let’s walk, run, hike, ride, or paddle together while apart to see how quickly we can tally up 10,000 miles! This isn’t a competitive challenge – it’s collaborative. We are all accumulating our miles in our own way and at your own pace – we’re in this together, but six feet apart.

Once you have registered for the Parkway Challenge, you will receive a thank-you confirmation email with a link to sign up for the 10,000 Mile Parkway Challenge on sodisp.  You will be able to manually enter in miles, or automatically by syncing your Strava or Garmin account. However, you do not need a Strava or Garmin account to participate in the 10,000 Mile Parkway Challenge.
