Band of Brothers fandom fitness challenge
what is heighhosilver?
Heigh-Ho Silver is a fitness challenge for the "Band of Brothers" fandom. Fans of the miniseries or book and friends or family of fans are welcome to join. The object is to walk, jog, or run 6 miles (9.654 kilometers) at one go, in honor of the "three miles up, three miles down" the paratroopers had to run on Currahee in training.
how does it work?
Everyone can work at their own pace - sample training program links are posted here. Build up to 6 miles, or beyond! Do 6 miles once, or once-a-month.

All fitness levels are welcome. We hope that three months is enough time to get even a "couch potato" gradually moving and on their way to 6 miles. This challenge was created in a healthy and fun vein, not a competitive one - everyone works at their own pace.
