A free "Beat the Blues Winter Marathon Challenge" is starting for all of Northeast Iowa.

The program is sponsored by Upper Explorerland.  It challenges people to complete a full "marathon" of activities by February 12th.  Run, walk, ski, snowshoe or bike 26 miles outdoors at your own pace or play outside for 30 minutes to equal one mile. Record your mileage and submit an entry online after each "marathon" you complete for a chance to win a $50 gift card to Decorah Bicycles to rent skis, ice skates, snowshoes or bikes.
