Doing a 100 Mile Challenge is a great way to make a new running habit or get you back on track after some time off. The secret to running better, faster and stronger is often consistency. So challenge yourself (and maybe a running buddy) to run or walk 100 Miles and see how much progress and confidence you make along the way.
This free printable pdf is best for new runners, walkers and experienced runners who want a different challenge. Let’s go!

If you really want to make sure you’re counting up your miles accurately you have to use an accurate tool to measure the distance. It doesn’t have to be a super fancy running watch or tracker though. There are affordable (even free) options to track how far you’re running.
When you are part of a buddy or group challenge and trying to keep each other accountable – find out how everyone is going to track their miles before you start.
