Allow Parks and Recreation staff to assist you in completing a 50-Mile Challenge, helping you set and achieve your summertime fitness goals.  The program is self-guided but staff is available for encouragement, to help you track your activity, offer weekly fitness activity ideas, and to notify you of upcoming challenge-related events. There is no charge to participate! Upon completing the 50-Mile Challenge, participants will receive a t-shirt and be entered into a drawing for a chance to win various prizes from Parks and Recreation and local businesses. For questions contact Madison Westmoreland at Madison.Westmoreland@HarrisonburgVA.gov or call 540-433-2474. All 50 Mile Fitness Challenge-friendly activities are noted throughout our Activity Guide with a "50MC" symbol!
