HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. -- The First Sergeants Council here will host a 31-day run, walk and cycling challenge throughout July for anyone associated with the installation.

“Get out and run, walk or ride your bicycle. This challenge is not about the steps logged, but the mileage,” said Master Sgt. Anthony Poulin, organizer for this event. “Personnel can track the distance on any number of apps and send in a weekly screen shot with their total miles logged."

Organizers ask participants to include their full name, age of any children participating, along with a screen shot to anthony.poulin@us.af.mil for tracking.

First sergeants will present awards for the top male, top female and top child under the age of 18. And for those who are cycling, awards will go to the top adult and top child under 18.

“Members are eligible to participate in both the running and cycling categories,” Poulin said. “Getting out and enjoying the outdoors is a great way to spend quality time with your family and help to keep your mind and body healthy.”

First sergeants held a similar event in May.
