Join us for the 100-Mile Challenge, a fitness event that encourages you to push your limits and achieve your fitness goals! Whether you prefer running or swimming, this challenge is for you. The rules are simple: track your mileage on your own spreadsheet, and complete 100 miles between the first and last day of the challenge month.

There's no need for GPS tracking devices; we trust you to track your mileage honestly. Once you've completed the challenge, submit your spreadsheet within the challenge month. The top 3 participants to complete the challenge will be recognized by Sergeant Major Armentrout and receive a digital announcement of completion.

Both running and swimming are great forms of aerobic exercise, which can improve cardiovascular health, aid in weight management, regulate blood pressure, manage anxiety and depression, and offer cognitive benefits. Join us in this challenge to improve your health and fitness!
