Virtual Challenge

Fitness classes are postponed and gyms are closed, but the sidewalks, trails and home gyms are still open!
There is no better way to social distance than going for a walk around the neighborhood, exploring the trails, following along with a workout video, at home yoga, lifting weights or using at-home gym and getting rewarded for it!

Join the Mason City Parks & Recreation Department for a fun time and a chance to win some awesome prizes during this difficult time.
All ages are welcomed and you can pick the Challenge you want to conquer!
