Tucson Moves a Million Miles

We’ve moved 1,149,541 miles!

“I’m proud to live in a city that gives me year-round opportunities to bike, hike, walk, run, swim—you name it. Tucson Moves a Million Miles is both a reminder and a challenge to be more active, and I hope you’ll join me in my goal to move one million miles together, as a city.”

—Mayor Jonathan Rothschild

What is Tucson Moves a Million Miles?

A challenge for Tucsonans to improve their health by being more physically active, Tucson Moves a Million Miles gives participants a way to record progress toward their fitness goals—and have it count toward our city’s total.

A previous challenge, Walk 100 Miles with the Mayor, ended in June 2013. Many Tucsonans reached that goal, so Mayor Rothschild challenged the community to move even farther—one million miles!
