Mayor TenHaken Kicks Off 2024 100 Miles, 100 Days Fitness Challenge

Published on April 25, 2024

Sioux Falls, South Dakota: Mayor Paul TenHaken invites the greater Sioux Falls community to get moving for his annual 100 Miles, 100 Days fitness challenge.

The challenge begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 27, and participants can log their first mile with the Mayor starting at the Cherapa Riverside Pavilion (300 North Cherapa Place).

The goal is to move at least one mile daily for 100 days. The challenge will end August 5, 2024. Participants can track their progress using the mileage tracker dashboard and share their experiences on social media using the hashtag #100Miles100DaysSF.

Whether strolling or biking through scenic parks, jogging along charming streets, or hitting the trails, this challenge encourages Sioux Falls residents of all ages to prioritize physical activity and embrace a healthier lifestyle.

“I still have a personal goal of making Sioux Falls the fittest city in the country,” said Mayor TenHaken. “There is such a strong connection between our physical health and mental well-being. I want people to get out and take those first steps, get in that first mile, and develop a habit that will ultimately lead them to healthier, longer lives.”

Mayor TenHaken emphasizes accessibility this year by highlighting City resources and amenities accessible to all.

“It’s important for those with disabilities to get out and be active,” said Tana Zwart, chair of the Disability Awareness and Accessibility Review Board. “There is a positive impact on their mental and physical health, as well as their independence and daily living. We want to include this special shout-out because those living with disabilities often don’t feel invited to the table.”
