HAGERSTOWN, MD News (1/7/2023) – The secret to getting ahead in the new year is getting started! And getting started on achieving your health and fitness goals begins with signing up for the Hub City 100 Miler Challenge!
Kickoff is now less than two weeks away for the event that will not only get you to the finish line, but is designed to motivate, encourage, and reward participants along the way. The program begins January 13, and when the Challenge concludes on April 22—100 days later—registrants who exercised 20 minutes (the equivalent of one mile) each day—will be certified “100 Milers”!
Registered “prospective 100 Milers” will receive a weekly e-newsletter providing encouragement, inspiration, and creative ways to get miles in, along with ways to get connected, stay active, and win weekly and grand prizes over 14 weeks.
On Friday, January 13 at 5pm, the 10th annual Hub City 100 Miler will begin with the official kickoff, highlighted by walking the first mile together as a group at Fairgrounds Park. While attending the kickoff event is not a requirement, it provides an opportunity to visit with local health and fitness vendors in the Fit Room starting at 4pm—an ideal way to get ready for the challenge ahead!
Registrants may also choose to earn some of their initial miles by participating in free fitness classes Friday evening and Saturday morning, either virtually or in-person.
The Hub City 100 Miler Challenge is open to anyone in the City of Hagerstown and beyond. There are no participation restrictions based on where a person lives. The program is self-reporting, so individuals are responsible for keeping track of their own progress and it is adaptable to any fitness level from beginner to advanced. The ultimate goal is a simple one: one mile a day for 100 days.
Visit the Hub City 100 Miler Challenge website to see all of this year’s incredible prizes and to register at www.hagerstownmd.org/hubcity100. Registration will remain open through January 31. More information is available on the Hagerstown Parks & Recreation Facebook page and by calling the Parks & Rec office at 301-739-8577, ext. 170.
