Collingwood’s Fittest Athlete will be crowned early next month in a new event that will see the victors taking home funds for their favourite sports organization.

The Collingwood Optimist Club, the Collingwood Blues Junior A team and Active Life Conditioning are working together give back to local minor sports organizations through a new fitness combine event taking place June 3 and 4.

The non-profit fitness event, organized by Active Life Conditioning owner Sarah Applegarth, will bring together athletes from different age groups for four tests: vertical jump, single leg pente jump, pro agility and one-minute assault bike (for total distance).

“We are trying to create a festival-type atmosphere for our local sport organizations to showcase their product and get kids back joining in after so many of them were shut down during COVID,” said Applegarth.

“We have noticed a decrease in the number of young kids being involved and active following the lockdowns. We also acknowledge that there are many families left struggling within our community and we want to help find ways to remove barriers for youth to get active.”

There will be four age categories to the competition: under 14, under 16, under 18 and open age. The registration fee is $10 per athlete and all participants will get an athletic-style T-shirt.

Active Life Conditioning at 8 Stewart Rd. will host the event June 3 and 4. The deadline to register is May 31.
