Thanks to everyone who took part in the Walk 100 Miles with the Mayor challenge. That was so successful that we’ve launched a new initiative, encouraging Tucsonans to Move a Million Miles!

Walk, run, bike or swim – 30 minutes of moderate exercise five or more days a week is one of the best things you can do for your health.

Regular exercise helps reduce the risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure.  Other benefits include weight loss, stronger bones and a better outlook on life.

Keep up the good work!

How do I participate?

Create an account so you can log your daily miles. Record miles for any type of physical activity – if you’re on the move, we want to hear about it! Your miles will count toward the total as we work together toward our goal of one million miles.

How do I calculate miles?

If you walk, run, or ride a bike, miles aren’t that hard to calculate. But for other activities, please use these estimates:

  • 1 hour mild exercise = 3 miles
  • 1 hour moderate exercise = 4 miles
  • 1 hour heavy exercise = 5 miles
