We can all get a little stir-crazy in the winter months - a time when we spend a considerable amount of time indoors, so we are CHALLENGING YOU to get up and get moving by participating in the LOCAL LOCKDOWN KM CHALLENGE, happening now through to March 31, 2021.

Did you know?
Exercise is about more than keeping in shape. It also can help with your emotional and mental health. Exercise can help you improve your self-esteem, keep your mind off problems, and give you a sense of control. In general, people who are active have less anxiety, depression, and stress than people who are not active.

 How can YOU participate?
  • Register today and start logging your kilometres
    Registration Form
  • Walk, Ski, Bike, Treadmill...any way that you can propel yourself without a motor - unless you require one - is welcome
  • Send us a weekly tally of the KM that you log
    **KM's must be sent to: tourism@kincardine.ca EVERY Friday (with exception of final week of contest, of which you will submit on Wednesday March 31st) before midnight starting Friday January 15, 2021.  If you registered for the challenge on Friday January 8, 2021, any KM's logged on this day will be considered a WILD CARD day on your first weekly submission
