Trans Canada Trails – Challenge Info

Trans Canada Trail LogoI am doing the following challenge for my own self to get me more motivated to get out there and walk – its all virtual, but still its a motivator for me .. and the challenge is as follows.

How this challenge works is that you choose the Provence you wish to walk, run or bike from the list below .. and each day you record how many miles or km you have walked/run/biked .. you take that number and subtract it from the total for that Provance.

EXAMPLE I walked 5.89 miles yesterday
I am walking Ontario … now Ontario’s trans Canada Trail is 2,485 miles .. now if i take off the 5.89 miles I walked I get 2,479.11 miles remaining to be walked till i have completed the trail

or

2,485 miles – 5.89 miles = 2,479.11 miles left to go

The goal ultmatly is to do all of the Trans Canada Trails, though the trails are not 100% complete at this point in time, there is hope that it will be 100% complete by the time the Olympics in 2010 come to Vancover BC, cause there is the hope to use the trail for part of the tourches journey.
