Parks dept. gives activity challenge

The Huntington Parks and Recreation Department is holding a new event, “Fifty Miles in Two Weeks Activity Challenge.”

The parks department challenges everyone to grab a pair of walking/running shoes and join in on this activity challenge.
The challenge began yesterday, Wednesday, Feb. 24. The parks department announced they would make a Facebook post where participants can post distances.

Participants will earn points for each mile walked. After 50 miles, each mile is worth two points.
Those who post a photo of themselves completing the challenge daily, or who post a photo of a fitness device that keeps track of walking distance, will receive an extra point.

The parks department requests that distances are reported daily.

This challenge will run through March 10.
The top three point leaders will receive a prize from the parks department.

Winner will be announced Thursday, March 11.
