Important Program Information
How do I register for the Mayors' Fitness Challenge competition?
Residents should register through the town in which they live. Register individually or by family.
What types of activities can we engage in and track our minutes each week?

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!

How do I report the number of minutes I exercised?
At the end of each week, you will receive a link to a survey via email. Use the link to report fitness activities for that week. YOU MUST REPLY TO THIS EMAIL EVERY WEEK. Don't forget to enter your minutes and help Cornelius win this year's Mayors' Fitness Challenge!
Is there a minimum or maximum amount of minutes I can submit?
There is no minimum; everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate! 1,800 minutes per individual is the maximum each family/team can report. This ensures that the competition is fair for all teams and that a group of "super athletes" cannot affect the calculations.
How will you know I actually completed the minutes I am reporting?
Minutes spent exercising will be reported on an honor system. This is a friendly competition between municipalities and we encourage members of our community to be honest about their achievements.
