From May 26 – August 19, make walking, running, or biking part of every day, keep a record of how far you travel, and then map your distance on the map of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth.
Here’s how to participate:
1. Sign up!
Fill out the online form at bit.ly/LPLrivendell giving us some basic info about yourself.
2. Record your travels.
Use the paper log available at the library starting May 20th or an app of your choice to track how far you travel each day. We also have a small number of pedometers that will be given out at the library Welcome Desk starting Monday May 23rd.
3. Let us know how you’re doing.
You can send us an update here. Plus, every two weeks we’ll send out an email with information about your fellow travelers, suggested walks, and a simple form to send us an update on how far you’ve traveled. We’ll post this information on a giant map of Middle-earth in the library so you can check in to see how you and your fellow travelers are doing!
4. Once you’ve reached your goal distance, come to the library and collect your prize!
We’ll have you fill out another short online form to let us know you’ve finished.
5. Keep walking!
For all of the details, please check the library’s Walking to Rivendell website.
You can also follow along at the Walking to Rivendell Facebook Event page and find riddles to solve, parks and trails to visit, and geocaching event info–all of which will earn you extra miles!
We can’t wait to see how far your furry feet can take you, and we do so hope to see you on our unexpected journey!
