Miles for Wellness Challenge 19

The spring Miles for Wellness Challenge started March 25, and for eight weeks participants fast tracked their fitness while enjoying the magic of railroad travel.

Challenge 19: Trail of Many Rails, featured train adventures past and present across the U.S. Participating teams began their virtual journey in North Carolina at the NC Transportation Museum and visited railroad sites in throughout the U.S., with the “Wedding of the Rails” as a focal point. Participants returned to North Carolina to finish their virtual adventure at the Tweetsie Railroad in Blowing Rock.

Participants taking advantage of this Miles for Wellness Challenge, surely enjoyed landmark buildings and breathtaking journeys, throughout this virtual railroad adventure!
