It’s time to lace up your shoes, air up those bike tires, dust off the paddles and hit a trail near you. Governor Jay Nixon recently launched the Governor’s 100 Missouri Miles Challenge, which encourages Missourians to complete 100 miles of outdoor physical activity by the end of the year. Whether you run, walk, bike, paddle or roll, everyone can participate.
Earlier this year, Missouri was named the “Best Trails State” by American Trails, a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting our nation’s hiking, biking, and riding trails. As a result, Governor Nixon is encouraging all Missouri families to get outside and take advantage of the incredible resources found in the Show-Me State by joining the 100 Missouri Miles Challenge.
