Follow in the inspirational footsteps of Harriet Tubman; the legendary abolitionist and social activist, as you retrace her journey from freedom, and discover how she helped many others to escape slavery.


Every time you complete a walking or running activity, you'll advance along the virtual map between Poplar Landing and Philadelphia, unlocking podcasts and postcards from Harriet at milestones along the route. 

Earn beautiful bling, stay focused and make your miles more fun. Run or walk the 137 miles, choose to complete it in 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 weeks and sign up today.



This challenge follows the incredible story of Harriet Tubman, charting her progress as she escapes from slavery, forges a new life for herself and returns to rescue her loved ones. We will explore Harriet's life, from her difficult childhood to the tumultous events leading to her escape, before learning what it was that convinced her to go all the way back.
