Fitness classes may be postponed and gyms may be closed but the outdoors are still open! There's no better way to social distance you and your family than going for a walk around the neighborhood, following along to a workout video, lifting weights, or using your at-home gym and getting rewarded for it! 

Join Quakertown Borough Parks & Recreation for a unprecedented race during unprecedented times... Go the "Social" Distance 100K Virtual Challenge! All ages welcome. 

What is a Virtual Challenge? 
A virtual challenge can be accomplished from any location and any workout you choose. You can run, walk, jog, bike, follow a workout video, lift weights in your basement, etc. As long as you stay active, self-isolate, and stay healthy you will defeat the challenge!
