#MoveitMonday Tips to Stay Active During Coronavirus:

Walk a Monday Mile to Start Your Healthy Monday

What is the Monday Mile?

The Monday Mile is one-mile route mapped out as a way to increase physical activity and connection with others. Our Monday Mile locations are marked with signs that contain maps, directional arrows, and distance markers so all you have to do is follow the signs. How easy is that?  We strive to make the Monday Mile inclusive and accessible for everyone.  Learn more about accessibility and the Monday Mile.

Where Can I Walk a Monday Mile?

There are Monday Miles all over Central New York. Take a tour of the area with our Onondaga County Monday Miles and Madison County Monday Miles. If you’re not from the area, don’t worry! You don’t need a physical route to walk your Mile.

Here’s a tip: It take the average person 20 minutes to walk one mile. Start your watches and get moving – no matter where you are!

Monday Mile with a Mission:

We’ve teamed up with several student organizations to create Monday Miles with a Mission and support campus. Monday Miles with a Mission add a spin on the typical Monday Mile by evoking a sense of purpose and pride among the participants. Students chose to come together to represent their organization, spread awareness for their cause, meet new people, and connect with each other, all while walking for their health! Check out a few of our Monday Miles with a Mission below. 

If you’re interested in leading a themed Monday Mile, or have your own Mission you’d like to share, contact Program Coordinator Mary Kate Lee: mlee77@syr.edu. Check out our undergraduate involvement page for more programs and activities.
