The Million Step Challenge is a free, month-long event that invites people of all ages and abilities to walk as much as they can during the month of May in the name of health, fitness and friendly competition.

Participants compete against each other for prizes, as well as working together to reach the community goal of 5 million steps walked in one month’s time.

New for 2017, the Million Step Challenge is expanding to allow participants to walk anywhere they want and log their totals in several new ways.

Using the online step tracker found on the webpage, walkers can log either their steps from a pedometer, miles, or their laps walked at Paramount School Park. 

There is no need to sign up and participants without internet access can log their totals on a paper version of the step tracker located at Paramount School Park (155th St and 8th Ave NE).

Totals are posted online revealing who the current top steppers are and how far we are in reaching our 5 million step goal.

The Million Step Challenge is produced in partnership between the City of Shoreline and the Ridgecrest Neighborhood Association. Many thanks to local business prize sponsors Fire and Earth Kitchen, North City Water District, and Immediate Clinic.
