The three north Mecklenburg towns - Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville - have hosted the Mayors' Fitness Challenge since 2021! Residents of each town join together each spring to become one team to win the title of Fittest Community.
The challenge will run six weeks, April 7-May 19. At the end of six weeks, the Town with the highest average active minutes per participant will be awarded the Fittest Community Trophy! Remember: it's never too late to join! We encourage everyone to invite your friends, family, co-workers, and anyone who lives in these towns to join in the fun and become more active.
Participants work to have the highest total of active minutes, then report them weekly. We encourage everyone to invite their family, friends, and co-workers who live in one of the three participating towns to join in the fun and become more active.
- 1 point for every minute of activity/exercise (max total of 1,800/person/week)
- Each week, one of the towns will host a walk on one of their greenways. Although points will not be rewarded for attending, each participant will be entered into a raffle which will be drawn at the end of each walk.
Program Details - REGISTRATION OPEN THROUGH MAY 12!
- The challenge will last April 7 - May 19. Register before the May 12 deadline!
- Register individually or by family - either way, it's free!
Congratulations to Past Winners:
2021: Town of Davidson
2022: Town of Cornelius
2023: Town of Huntersville
Each town will be providing their teams with a list of activities happening in their community.
In addition, families can walk, run, bike, or participate in their favorite games or sports together. During this competition, it is important for everyone to track all minutes spent doing any physical exercise to give their team the best chance of winning. Participant prizes will be awarded along the way!
