Fitness Challenges


Here are the challenges for the 2017-18 season. The challenges begin Jan 1 and go to Mar 31 and some events have special start dates.

All of the activities except the team event can be completed anytime during the season and are self-monitored. The one team event does have a start and end date and requires a team leader and event coordinator.

4. Twin Peaks

Or, If you are 48 and ski every trail in one day you can top up your mileage to 48 and you will have skied your age.

7. Team Destination Ski
    This is a team event and this year’s destination has not be set yet although a ski through the Italian Alps and on to the south of Italy is a possibility. The distance will be around 1800 – 2000 km and the wind up will celebrate the wines of the region we end up in. The event will start Saturday, Jan 27 and end on Sunday midnight, Mar 25.
    Teams can have up to 8 people and team leaders report weekly (Mondays). So get a team  together, choose a cool name and let me know before Jan 27.
