Call for Walkers
The Lawrence Hopewell Trail (LHT) has launched its 2020-’21 Journey to the Moon. This virtual event brings people together to collectively hike and bike 238,000 miles to the moon.
Participants can log miles on or off the LHT by biking, walking, jogging, skating, walking the dog, or even from a treadmill or spin bike. All ages and fitness levels are welcome, and groups are encouraged. The LHT also hopes to inspire participants to reach out to friends and family around the world, joining the community in its efforts to Journey to the Moon. With Halloween around the corner, participants are encouraged to log miles in costume and upload photos and videos or share them on social media (#LHTJourneytotheMoon).
Each mile will count as 22 miles — the total length of the LHT — making the virtual journey 10,818 miles. Journey to the Moon continues through March 1, 2021. Participants can log their miles using the Journey to the Moon uploader and view the Journey to the Moon tracker to check collective progress. They are also invited to follow the Journey to the Moon Facebook Group for updates, fun facts, and to share progress (#LHTJourneytotheMoon). For more information visit www.lhtrail.org.
