On Your Mark, Get Set, GO! 2023 Fit City Challenge starts April1.

It’s a marathon, not a sprint.

The Fit City Challenge officially kicks off on Saturday, April 1. The 6-week challenge will test the cities of Southlake, Keller, and Colleyville and in the end, will award one of them as the Most Fit City 2023. We’ll challenge you to be physically active, focus on your well-being, and work with your fellow residents to move Southlake to the top of the leaderboard!
