Fort4Fitness Senior Challenge

The Final Mile at Parkview Field on Friday, September 26, was a lot of fun! A record number of participants took part in the Senior Marathon in 2014, working hard all summer long to log their miles and cross the finish line at Parkview Field and celebrate their success from the summer. Thank you to everyone who attended our Thursday Pep Rallies at the ASH Centre! We had a great time organizing activities to help promote healthy living and fitness to our Senior Marathon participants!

About the Fort4Fitness Seniors Marathon
While Seniors are invited to participate in any of the F4F events, we are proud to feature the Fort Wayne Seniors Marathon as part of the Fort4Fitness Festival.  It
is an incremental walking/running program that has been designed to encourage seniors to exercise and to continue to live a healthy lifestyle that will benefit them for years to come. Participating seniors will walk or run (or some combination of both) a total of 26.2 miles (a full marathon distance) over a designated 16-week period from June through September.
