Are you looking to set a personal goal and get some exercise this summer? Then make Greenway 150 your Summer Challenge. Parks Foundation Calgary is challenging you to challenge yourself. The best part is that it’s an attainable goal that gets you some fresh air, exercise, and fun in the process. Bring your friends, family, and pets on board too!
Here’s the deal: from June 25 to August 28, you have to log 150 kilometres on the Rotary/Mattamy Greenway citywide. It doesn’t matter which quadrant of the city you live in, because the best part is that you can navigate the Greenway wherever you live! You can do 5 km per day, or you can do all 150 km at once. You can do it on your own, or you can do it with a team. The choice is your’s; the challenge is your’s! You’ve got two months to do it!
How do you get started? Registration kicked off today. It’s super easy to register – you can do it right here on the Website. Once you’ve registered, there are four ways to track your progress (because you don’t want to miss a single kilometre!)
Here’s how: if you’re reading this, you’re already on the site. Now just go to Summer Challenge, and scroll down to Step 2 (Four Ways to Track Your Progress). If you’re old-school, then it’s easy enough to print a form and track your kilometres on paper. If you’re slightly more savvy, you can download the form to your computer and save your kilometres as you track them. You can also use a link that you will receive via email after you register. Lastly, we’ve got handy passports which you can pick up at the Parks Foundation Calgary office. The passport is a great little tool to keep on hand, log your progress, distribute to family and friends; and comes complete with maps and tips. It’s a great keepsake of your journey.
And here’s the kick. You can use social media to report on your progress and get others in your community involved! Tag Parks Foundation Calgary, and use the hashtags #Greenway150 and #MyGreenway for your chance to win weekly prizes. The beauty of the Greenway is that links 55 communities. The beauty of the Summer Challenge is that it links the people of these communities. It’s easy, free, fun, and just a little sweaty. So set your goal now and sign up!
