What is the 365 Mile Challenge?

Our challenge is a fitness challenge, but so much more! Whether you're just starting to discover the benefits of being more active, or if you're already a seasoned adventurer, you're in the right place!

The 365 Mile Challenge community works together every year to complete a common goal - move at least 365 miles. You can walk, run, hike, swim, bike, paddle, snowshoe, etc. - as long as you're the one doing the work, it counts! We also have awesome mini-challenges throughout the year to keep you moving (Adventure Bingo, anyone?).

A Collaborative Challenge

This isn't a competitive challenge - it's collaborative. We are all getting our miles in our own way and at our own pace - but we're in this together. We have some members going for double or even triple miles, while others are working hard towards 365. We have folks who are running or hiking 20+ miles per week, and others who take evening walks at sunset around their neighborhood. We're all 365 Mile Challenge members.

And Yet, We're a Team...

We cheer for each other's successes and we help each other get back on track if we fall off. We are a community with a lot of support, motivation, and inspiration to share. Come join us!

Behind the scenes

Val Hopkins


Let me introduce myself. I'm a certified tree-hugger and nature lover and a retired nurse.

My love of the outdoors and my healthcare background combine to make me very passionate about motivating, supporting, and inspiring people to get and stay active - which is what this challenge is all about. This is most definitely my "Passion Project".

Kayla Hopkins


My background is in biology, as I have a B.S. in Biology with a minor in Conservation Studies. I love animals and nature, so naturally, I enjoy being outdoors hiking, kayaking, or walking my adorable dog, a papillon named Clark. I bring my creativity and technical knowledge to this challenge doing everything from graphic design, website maintenance, and writer to provide the best 365 experience possible.


We currently have a team of 10 ambassadors. They are bloggers, writers, photographers, social media experts and all-around Badasses. Most importantly - they are all passionate about the mission of 365 Mile Challenge.

Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked

When does the challenge run?

January 1 - December 31st, but you can join at any time and start whenever you're ready. If you join say in April, you’ll still have until December 31st to finish your 365 miles.

Why do you have to pay to register?

Your registration fee supports the challenge. It allows us to provide all of the fun things that we do all year. Think of it as a race entry fee, only it’s for a race that lasts all year long.

How do I record my mileage?

Registration includes access to our 365 Mile Challenge App! It will allow you to track your miles by linking it to a device or app that you already use (Strava, Garmin, FitBit, Apple Watch/iHealth, Google Fit, Map My... apps), using the built-in pedometer feature, or manually logging in your miles. There will also be "Mileage Monday" posts every week in the Facebook group for you to report your mileage. When the challenge is finished, your finisher's certificate will appear right in the app!

What if I miss a day?

It's okay! Make it up over the rest of the week. You can log the miles however you want. While the goal is to build a habit by doing it every day, some people do it every other day and some get all of their miles over the weekend. If you're just starting out though, we highly recommend that you try to get out as close to every day as possible.

Is this challenge open to everyone, regardless of where we live?

Currently, the 365 Mile Challenge is only open to folks in the U.S A. and Canada, but we're investigating options to make it available internationally soon.

What kind of miles can I log?

Any activity that gets your legs moving and your heart pumping counts. For example, running, hiking, and mountain biking count, but 4-wheeling doesn’t. When in doubt, send us a quick message and we'll get right back to you. The goal here is to get our bodies moving!

How do I count activities like aerobics or yoga?

For exercises that are not easily tracked by distance, we have a helpful conversion chart that converts time spent on these activities into distance equivalents that you can use.

Can I do this as a family? Is there an age limit to participate?

We encourage you to bring your spouse, children, parents, aunts, uncles and favorite pets along for the ride. To enroll in the challenge however, they need to be at least 16. We do have an 365MC Explorers mini-challenge for children ages 2-18, but only if the parent or relative is a current member.

What do I get if I complete 365 miles?

If you've completed at least 365 “self-propelled” miles during the year, you’ll get insane bragging rights and a finisher's certificate that will pop up right on the app that you can share! We also have cool patches and a stunning medal available that you can add-on to your registration.

Can I do more than 365 miles?

Yes! Many of our members come back every year with goals to double or even triple their miles! We have special patches for those who complete a Double, a Triple, or an Xtreme (anything more than a Triple)! You can add-on a patch during registration and tell us which patch you've earned when the challenge ends.
