The Appalachian Trail is almost 2,190 miles long, passes through 14 states, eight different national forests, six national park units and numerous state parks, forests, and game lands. Walking end to end would get you nearly 5 million steps. This fall, take the Hike for your Health Challenge and see how much of the Appalachian Trail you can cover.

Participants will log their activity throughout the 10-week challenge, and track their progress using the onlineWell Aware Fitness Log. Based on participation, you will be eligible to win prizes for yourself, your team, and your school or office.

The online  Well Aware Fitness Log is available to you 24/7, so log your activity at any time.

Share the Hike for your Health flyer with your coworkers. Review program rules, prizes, and instructions with the Program Guide.
