Previously, participants would have to run or walk to complete the challenge, but not anymore! To be more accessible to all, participants can now run, walk, bike, swim, or even hopscotch their way across 2024 miles. If you want to run/walk, nothing changes! BUT if you would like to bike, swim, or mooove the year, you can tell the tracker to keep a tally of those miles!
There is debate each year over counting “intentional” miles versus using “daily steps.” This is up to you! Everyone’s challenge is different. The important question is, “Are you taking more steps each day because of this challenge?” If so, then this is in the right spirit. We want people to move more, get more miles, and be more active. This is your challenge, so you get to decide which miles to track!
LAST AND MOST IMPORTANT POINT: Each person comes to this challenge with unique circumstances, perspectives, and opinions. Please do not get involved in arguments or debates over what counts for miles. This is YOUR challenge. It is personal and customizable to YOU. If someone else is choosing to approach it differently, it will not affect how you take the challenge.
