2021 Mayors' Fitness Challenge


Town vs Town, Mayor vs Mayor.... Come on, Cornelius, let's win this thing!!

The three north Mecklenburg towns - Cornelius, Davidson and Huntersville - are hosting our first  Mayors' Fitness Challenge! Residents of each town will join together to become one team to win the title of Fittest Community.  #OneTownOneTeam

The challenge will last 12 weeks but you can register any time during this period - it's never too late to join! Each week, participants will work to have the highest total of active minutes. We encourage everyone to invite their family, friends, and co-workers who live in one of our three northern towns to join in the fun and become more active. (Due to COVID, we recommend individual workouts, participating with those in your family/group, or outdoor workouts following physical distancing guidelines).

Cornelius residents register below. Residents of Huntersville and Davidson should register at their town's websites.

Questions & Answers

How do I register myself and family 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 12-week 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 (1 adult/1 child) will be awarded along the way!

How do I report the number of minutes I exercised?

You will receive a survey via email every Friday. You will be asked to enter the total number of minutes or hours you, and your family members if participating, were actively engaged in fitness activities during the week. YOU MUST REPLY TO THIS EMAIL EVERY WEEK.

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.
