Be a part of a million mile march to end mountaintop removal.

Dedicate your next hike, walk, or run to ending mountaintop removal. It can be on the treadmill or the trail…a short hike with some friends or a long backpacking trip…a jog around the block or an ultra marathon. Our goal is to raise one million miles from hikers, runners, and walkers who love mountains and want to protect them from mountaintop removal mining.

Hike, run, or walk as many miles as you want, as often as you want. Submit your mileage every day or every month by emailing milesformountains@yahoo.com or leaving a comment below. We’ll update the site regularly with a collective tally.

Every mile brings us closer to our goal of one million miles to end mountaintop removal.
