RunnerTrack Your Progress

Don't you love the feeling that comes from knowing you are making progress towards an achievable goal? Many of us do. The program website makes it easy to document your progress as you walk, run or bike one trail after the other.

A unique 10-digit pass key is displayed on each trail marker. Once you find a marker, record the pass key in your passport booklet. (Remember to take a pen or pencil with you!) You can log in to the program website at any time and enter the pass key.
