Fitness Fest began as a bicycle race or criterium. The popular annual event was launched by Sanford physician Parker McConville, who had seen similar events spring up in Moore County and Chapel Hill. Now in its sixth year, the Fitness Fest has become more than just a bike race.
It draws hundreds of cyclists to compete in a series of races in a closed-off section of downtown Sanford. In addition, several hundred local runners and their families compete in the 5k Run/Walk, 10k Run, Kids Fun Run and Kids Bike Race. There is something for everyone: bounce houses, a rock climbing wall, food, crafts, and more will happen simultaneously from 9:30 a.m.- 4:30 p.m. Proceeds from this year’s Fitness Fest will be donated to several locdal charities and will be announced soon.
Fitness Fest is proud to announce that the Brick City Criterium has been chosen as the BEST Criterium in the Triangle and East by Endurance Magazine!
