Mayor’s Fitness Challenge is back

Feb. 7. Registration opens today for the  Mayor’s Fitness Challenge.

Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville residents can log their active minutes each week and help support their town.

Davidson was the winner in 2021.

The Challenge will run eight weeks, March 6 – April 30. Each week towns are working to have the total most active minutes. At the end of the eight weeks, the town with the highest average total will be awarded the Fittest Community Trophy. 

A kick-off will be held 1 pm March 6 in North Meck Park. 

Participants should register on their town website. Here’s a direct link to the Cornelius registration.

Challenge rules

1. Individuals and families pre-register in order to receive the weekly emails.

2. Registration is on-going so people can sign up at anytime throughout the challenge. 

3. Minute totals are submitted weekly and cannot be grouped together in one submission, no back dating minutes. 

4. 1800 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.

5. At the end of each week, registered participants will receive an email with the minute reporting link and instructions on how to report their minutes, an update of the previous week, and some highlighted activities for the upcoming week.
