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 Challenge

Denali is challenging its visitors and staff to get outside, get active, and log 100 miles of human-powered travel to commemorate its 100th birthday. You can walk, bike, run, ski or snowshoe.

Watch for ranger-led events you can choose to attend to help you reach your Human Hundred - or get out and about on your own! Claim your 2017 Human Hundred participation sticker at a park visitor center.

Don't forget to share your fun adventures on social media @DenaliNPS using #Denali100 and #HumansofDenali.

For more information on this or any 100th Birthday events in 2017, contact Denali's Anniverary Team.

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.
