Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days®

Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days® is a 15-week walking program which encourages participants to develop the habit of walking at least one mile a day as a form of exercise.

Now in its 30th year, the annual program will start on May 20 and will run through August 27.

“Last year we had over 7,800 people participate,” said Dave Harshbarger, wellness manager for WVU Medicine making Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days® the largest exercise program in the state.

T-Shirt Orders:

Participants can purchase a commemorative t-shirt for a nominal fee through our specially licensed vendor Davis & Lee. Information on ordering a T-shirt will be shared by May 20.

Kick-off walk:

There will be a kick-off walk this year held on-site at J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital on Wednesday, May 22 at 12:00 Noon. The walk will be led by the WVU Mountaineer mascot and all are welcome to participate and will gather at the outside entrance next to the Bruce McClymonds Conference Center to go for a one mile walk (weather permitting).

How to Participate:

Join us in our 30th Annual Walk 100 Miles in 100 Days® program! Although we state that the goal for participants is to walk at least one mile per day for 100 days, there is no limit as to how many can be reported per day. Other forms of equivalent aerobic exercise also count (use a scale of 20 minutes = one mile).

Participants can register individually, create or join walking teams and also organize offering the program for their own business/organization.
