We Challenge You To Walk 2,000 Miles
In support of the National Park Service Centennial year in 2016, Lewis and Clark National Park, Clatsop County Public Health, The Way to Wellville, Sunset Empire Parks and Recreation District, Astoria Park and Recreation, Columbia Memorial Hospital and Providence Seaside Hospital, challenge all the residents of Clatsop County (and beyond) to walk 2,000 miles.
We challenge you to form teams of 5-10 members. Then teams challenge themselves and other teams to complete 2,000 miles over the course of a year or 500 miles in a 90-day period. Don't let the number intimidate you. Participants can walk, jog, run, hike, ski, swim, do yoga and any of a dozen plus other activities. Just convert your activity to active miles with this conversion chart and you are on your way.
Here is the weekly breakdown of individuals miles based on team size:
5 person team = 7.8 miles per person per week of activity
6 person team = 6.5 miles per person per week of activity
7 person team = 5.5 miles per person per week of activity
8 person team = 5 miles per person per week of activity
9 person team = 4.3 miles per person per week of activity
10 person team = 4 miles per person per week of activity
If you walk 4 miles a week, your team will walk over 2,000 miles in 1 year.
Remember, only "Active Miles" count. Your day to day walking around the office to the copy machine or to the mailbox is great but, you can only log your "active" miles for this challenge.
