The Oswegoland Park District is organizing a healthy challenge for people in the area. 

They have set a goal to see if residents can walk or run and log 201.5 miles on Monday nights this summer. All are welcome to walk, run, or use wheelchairs for the Monday Miles Community Challenge beginning Monday, June 1. Take a deep breath of summer evening air and participate in 11 weeks of healthy fun while contributing to the community goal. 

Monday Miles is a way to stay active, catch up with friends, and even make some new ones!  Participants choose between a one mile or three mile guided course. Wheelchairs, strollers, and leashed dogs are all encouraged to show up at Prairie Point Park, 4120 Plainfield Road, Oswego.

Check-in for the weekly event begins at 6 pm. The Monday Miles siren will go off at 6:30 pm. Monday Miles runs from Monday, June 1 – Monday, Aug. 10.  Price is $2 per person, no matter what distance covered. 

People who participate in 6 of the 11 nights receive a Monday Miles T-shirt at the end of the summer. Log 26 miles in 11 weeks to be a member of the Marathon Club.  Marathon Club members have their name entered into a raffle for free entry to a year of Park District races.
