You don't have to wait long for the next big Fort-4-Fitness event. On the heels of the largest turnout for the fourth annual Fort-4-Fitness Health Festival in September, which included a Half-Marathon, 10K, 4-Mile Run/Walk, Kids Marathon and Seniors Marathon -- the Spring Cycle is set to be the premier cycling event in the Fort Wayne area. The inaugural Fort-4-Fitness Spring Cycle is Memorial Day weekend 2012, on May 26 and 27. The event kicks off at Headwaters Park in downtown Fort Wayne at 9 a.m. and takes cyclists on a 56-mile race (for licensed cyclists in Classes 1 to 5) followed by Tours of 15, 25 or 56 miles. Those tours are open to all cyclists who are up to the challenge! Then on Sunday thousands are expected to participate in the Bike-the-Fort family leisure ride. This ride also departs from Headwaters Park and will provide a scenic view of the heart of Fort Wayne. Free bicycle safety demonstrations and other activities will be happening on both days of the cycling event. Close to 10,000 participants were registered for this year's fall Fort-4-Fitness running and walking events. The spring event is sure to be crowd pleaser. Start planning a spring trip around this both professional cyclist, and family-oriented event now! For more information visit Fort-4-Fitness online. Detailed information about registration, fees, course maps and more will be available online in the coming months. Fort-4-Fitness is a non-profit organization entering its fifth year of events, focusing on the promotion of health and fitness through an active lifestyle.
