  • Pine Pacer Challenge

    Pine Pacer Challenge
    Start 2021 off on the right foot with a new running and walking challenge from The Morton Arboretum. Participants are invited to select a goal of 25, 50, or 100 miles, track their runs and walks through the month of January, and submit mileage on the Arboretum's virtual result website to chart their progress. Participants are encouraged to get their miles on site at the Arboretum, but can also simply run or walk around the block, on a treadmill, or anywhere else they enjoy. The goal is to meet a personal challenge and enjoy the many health benefits of physical activity and spending time in nature.
