Last year, Governor Jeremiah W. (Jay) Nixon and the First Lady launched the 100 Missouri Miles Challenge to celebrate Missouri’s distinction as the “Best Trails State” in America and promote the health benefits of outdoor physical activity.
The response from Missourians all across the state was overwhelming, as Missourians logged over 1.1 million miles on Missouri trails in 2013. From cities and suburbs to small towns and rural areas, Missourians tackled this challenge as an opportunity to get active and healthy, while enjoying the great outdoors.
This year, the 100 Miles Challenge is encouraging Missourians to complete “100 Missouri Miles” of physical activity by walking, running, biking, rolling, paddling or hiking throughout Missouri’s state parks and historic sites.
This initiative is an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors, improve your health and – best of all – have fun with family and friends. From urban greenways to back country hiking trails, Missouri’s trails offer something for all ages, interests and ability levels.
