It takes a little extra push for some people to remain active during the winter months, and the eighth annual Jack Frost Challenge is aiming to do that.

The Green Action Centre’s event is encouraging Manitobans to use active modes of transportation and take part in outdoor leisure activities this week.

From February 3-9, teams of one to five people are challenged to walk, run, bike, skate, ski or snowshoe a total of 130 kilometres during the week.


“Whether you are cycling to work or skating for fun, these actions have a significant impact on our personal health as well as the health of our planet,” said Nicole Roach, Green Action Centre’s sustainable transportation project coordinator.

“My hope is that this challenge will inspire more Manitobans to get outside, get moving, and choose sustainable modes of transportation year-round.”
