Montgomery County Recreation Starts the New Year with the 100 Mile Fitness Challenge

Montgomery County Recreation, for the second year, challenges everyone to get out and walk, jog, run a mile or more, or participate in 20 minutes of continuous physical activity like biking, swimming, yoga, aerobics, skiing, weightlifting, dancing or others.

The goal of the program is to complete 100 miles (or more) in 100 days. Twenty minutes of continuous physical activity also counts as one mile. Registration is available at ActiveMONTGOMERY.org using activity number 26595.

The 100 Mile Challenge will kick off with a fun event at the Holiday Park Senior Center, 3950 Ferrara Drive, Wheaton on Saturday, January 21 from 2 to 4 p.m. The event will include a healthy taste testing reception, fitness activities, a Zumba dance group activity and body fat analysis. All participants will receive a T-shirt, water bottle and swag bag at the event. Speakers will include Nicky and Bob Lowry who will discuss their adventures climbing Mt. Everest this past spring.
