It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you join this group.  You will find the most amazing Challengers just like you who are dedicated to improving their lives and health, discovering new places, and meeting new people while supporting worthy causes.    
You will track your mileage using a fitness app on your smartphone ( Runkeeper, Mapmywalk, Nike+ Fitness, etc) or a wearable fitness device ( Fitbit, Garmin, smart watch, pedometers, etc).  You can also manually track your miles (jogging tracks, known routes and distances, Google Maps, using car to calculate distance, etc.) Note: If you are currently using a fitness app/device, you may use it for the 1000 Mile Challenge.

Charity Miles App

  Don't forget to download the Charity Miles app.  Earn 25 cents a mile for a charity you choose from a list of 47 courtesy of Corporate Sponsors like Johnson & Johnson, Humana, & Chobani (Note: you must wear your smartphone during your activity and t here is now an "indoor" option ).  You can choose a different charity for each activity.   Just start the app, do your activity, then stop the app.  Your charity will automatically get the money you earned for them!!   Visit for more info or to download the app.  

Note:   DO NOT use the Charity Miles app to track your miles. You will run your regular Fitness Tracking App at the SAME TIME as Charity Miles app.  There have been reports that the Charity Miles App sometimes inaccurately calculates mileage.
