 WHO DOES IT BENEFIT? Makin’ Macon Fit, supported completely by local volunteers, is designed to promote a healthier life style and encourage physical activity. This event supports Macon County schools, teachers, scholarships, and community programs. Because of the great help given by our volunteers, we are able to take the money raised and donate it directly to our local education program. Please help us make this year’s event the biggest and best ever!

SPECIAL RULES FOR THE BIKE EVENTS. Everyone participating in any bike event must wear a helmet and obey all the rules of the road. You must be 12 years old, or have an adult guardian to ride the ten mile tour. The Jr. Bike Rodeo (ages pre-school through 8th grade) is on a closed course, so there will be no traffic.

THE NESTLE WATER 5K RACE AND CITIZENS BANK 3 MILE WALK. We are proud to have Nestle’ Water as our 5k Race Sponsor again this year. This is the perfect race for the new runner. We have awards for overall male and female winners, plus awards two deep in 10 age categories. Citizens Bank 3 mile walk takes place at the same time as the run and is held on the same course.

WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO DO? Children will enjoy the bouncy equipment, bike rodeo, fun run, and obstacle course. There are door prizes to be given away, including bicycles. The prize drawing takes place at 11a.m. All pre-registered participants will receive a Makin’ Macon Fit t-shirt. There will be plenty of fruits and drinks available.

WHO ARE THE HOSTS OF THE EVENT? The Lafayette Rotary, MCHS Interact Club, MCJHS Junior Interact Club, Macon County Health Council, Macon County Coordinated School Health, Macon County General Hospital, and UT Extension. We have worked hard to make this year’s event the biggest and best ever!
