The Step One Challenge
Forming teams of 3-6 people, the Step One Challenge encourages participants to exercise together, hold each other accountable, and work together on your fitness journey.
The Step One Challenge, Cleveland County's only free walking contest, encourages the citizens of Cleveland County to get out there and move. Aiming for 10k steps a day!
The Step One 5K is a second part of the challenge. Independent of the 6 week walking contest, the Step One 5K is open to anyone that wants to participate. The 5K was created to further encourage people to be active and to take control of their health. We keep the price low so price is less of a barrier to participation.
We want people to get healthy and that includes you!
Welcome to the Step One Challenge, Cleveland County's only FREE 6 week walking challenge. The Step One Challenge has existed for 9 years, attracting over 10,000 participants. The contest is open to all Cleveland County residents.
