2023 Roanoke 100 Miler Details

The Roanoke 100 Miler is the perfect way to stay active this winter by setting a goal of 100 miles in 100 days! You can walk, run, hike, or bike your way to 100 miles, or substitute one mile for 30-minutes of human-powered activity! Whether you earn your 100 miles playing disc golf, swimming, rock climbing, or doing yoga, the most important thing is to challenge yourself to reaching the goal in 100 days! 

All participants will receive encouraging messages, check-ins, and fitness tips from PLAY Roanoke and will have opportunities to win gift cards and other prizes. When you register, choose either to receive the 2023 Roanoke 100 Miler T-shirt, or to register without the T-shirt. 2023 T-shirt design coming soon!

New in 2023, all 100 Miler participants will also receive a FREE ENTRY ($20 value) to the Blue Ridge Slow-K on April 23!

The Blue Ridge Slow-K, dubbed “America’s Slowest 5K,” is a laid-back, un-timed fun run, open to the public the day after the Blue Ridge Marathon. The Slow-K is a great way for non-marathoners to join in on the fun of the weekend and experience the race atmosphere. Enjoy coffee, donuts, mimosas, and yoga!

Held one week after the conclusion of the 100 Miler, this is the perfect way to celebrate with the support of an active community by your side. And, if this will be your first 5K (or first 5K in a while…) why not use the 100 Miler Challenge as your “couch to 5k” training program?!

More info on the Blue Ridge Slow-K can be found here.

“This program was a real motivator for me to hit and exceed my goals. Last year my goal was 100 miles and I exceeded it. This year my goal was 250 miles and I just added in last week’s numbers and hit 350 miles. Not only did I enjoy the program so did my wife who had a goal if 100 miles. She went to the gym and easily passed this number doing at least 2 miles each day on the treadmill and walking around the neighborhood” – Steve

“…the Roanoke 100 Miler is such an opportunity for fitness and well being. I have participated for several years and find the Roanoke 100 to be a true catalyst for mental and physical motivation. This year is no exception and even more so. The program remains wonderfully simple yet the benefits are so real. Even though I live 45 miles from Roanoke, I feel I am part of a team that empowers each other to get out there and commit to the miles and build a healthier community.” – Tenney
