The #100Miles100DaysSF Fitness Challenge is coming back with a goal. This year, Mayor TenHaken wants to see people get creative. This community's goal is to run, walk, bike, rollerblade, or walk on your hands...haha kidding!

Every April I put out the "100 Miles, 100 Days" challenge. Walk, run, bike, rollerblade, but just get active! It's pretty set a goal for yourself and from April 27-August 5, you get after it! We've logged thousands of miles over the years and the stories are always incredible

On the Mayor's Fitness Challenge website, Mayor Paul lists great places to start getting your miles going!

  • Indoors at the Community Centers: Example: Walking Program in the Gymnasium
  • Sioux Falls Parks & Recreation Fitness Classes & Events
  • Bike Trail
  • Treadmill
  • Rowing Machine
  • Recreation/Hiking Trails
  • Street Sidewalks
  • Walking Trails in Parks

The #100Miles100DaysSF is a great way to experience the bike trails and the open spaces that Sioux Falls has to offer. I know I have a blast participating in the Fitness Challenges all while enjoying some great sunny days!  Even my dog, Honey was able to join me for some miles when the challenge first started!
