What is Million Mile Month (MMM)?
Million Mile Month™ challenges individuals, and groups of any kind to join together as a global community to complete one million miles of physical activity during the month of April, and to engage in a huge cause: their health.
It’s not just for athletes, it’s for everyone, and it’s not just running, it’s moving: walking, running, cycling, and yoga. Complete your miles, log your miles on the MMM website, and reach the million mile mark. There are prizes (bikes, fitness trackers, gift cards)! There are bragging rights! There is improved health! It’s fun! It’s outdoors! What’s not to love?

If I’m already participating in a race, office fitness program, other health challenge, etc. can I count those miles?
Yes. No matter when, where or how you complete your miles…we just want you to be inspired to get active! Whether you are walking to school, biking to work, running at the gym or participating in a race or walkathon…log those miles on the MMM website during April to win prizes and help the community reach one million miles.
Are there age restrictions on who can participate?
We want EVERYONE to participate, and have fun doing it. Grab the kids, your grandma, and your dog, and get outside. Right now we can only log human miles, but believe me, your pooch will love the extra outdoor time with his/her favorite human. Participants age under 13 are required to have parent permission to use the website.
