Human Hundred: A Centennial Challenge
Grab your gear. Mark your map. Start your app, if that's your thing. Walk, bike, run, ski, snowshoe - however you feel moved to move yourself!
The "Human Hundred" challenges you to log 100 miles using human power in Denali during the NPS and Denali centennial celebrations. This means you have 2016 and 2017 to complete the challenge, though you can aim for 100 miles each year if you wish.
In addition to spending time in your park, successful challengers even get a prize - a commemorative sticker (which will be different in 2016 and 2017).
You can complete the challenge any way you wish. There will be a number of hosted/group events, which will be advertised on this page as they are scheduled - or, you can log all of your miles on your own. Regularly scheduled ranger programs are also a great way to accrue miles!
Sample Tracking Sheet
You should keep track of your mileage (and/or hours) however you'd like. We suggest something simple, like a spreadsheet formatted like the table below:

February 27, 2016
Denali's first Human Hundred event, an 8-mile ski on the Spring Trail, was held on Winterfest Weekend. A spectacular afternoon graced the group of skiers who included one very small skier (in tow!) and visitors from as far away as Maryland.
Range Clara led a snowshoe hike that departed from the Murie Science and Learning Center and explored Denali's front country trails.
March, 2016During National Park Week, rangers led two bicycle outings, starting from the Teklanika Rest Stop and heading west on the Park Road. Over 80 cyclists participated!
