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.
The Step One 5K and Fun Run is a second part of the challenge. Independent of the 6 week walking contest, the Step One 5K and Fun Run is open to anyone that wants to participate. The Step One 5K and Fun Run, presented HomeTrust Bank of Shelby, 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!
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!
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.
