No matter your fitness level, you can join the Flagstaff Fitness Challenge by downloading the Strava app onto your phone and searching "Flagstaff Fitness Challenge".

Here, participants can share their activities, cheer on others and compete on the weekly leaderboards for total activity time and a weekly prize package. Please note that participants are only eligible for one weekly prize pack. However, the Top 3 finishers for each week will be entered into the grand prize draw!

The five-week Flagstaff Fitness Challenge, which started August 1, is new in 2022. It replaces the Flagstaff Bike Challenge, which was established in the summer of 2020 as a way to encourage the region's residents to get outside, get active and feel connected to the area in a safe manner during the pandemic. It was designed for participants of ALL ages and abilities. The Flagstaff Bike Challenge continued in 2021 with a few minor tweaks.

This year, we've expanded the challenge to include a variety of activities, including walking, running, hiking, cycling, swimming, weight training, yoga and much more! Prizes will be awarded weekly for five weeks, with a grand prize draw at the conclusion of the challenge!

We urge you to join us this summer and rise to the challenge!
