Join Jimmie at the Jimmie Johnson Foundation Fit Fest!
New for 2017 is the Jimmie Johnson Foundation Fit Fest presented by Blue Bunny Ice Cream on Memorial Day - Monday, May 29.
The one-day fitness and music festival is taking place just south of Charlotte at Anne Springs Close Greenway in Fort Mill, South Carolina. There will be three running events where you can choose your distance and compete: a 5K, 8K, and a half marathon trail running race.
The event will also include a four hour endurance mountain bike race, where you can compete alongside Jimmie Johnson and cycling legends Lance Armstrong, George Hinicapie, and Christian Vande Velde.
Bring the whole family out to compete, as the Spartan Foundation will be hosting a Spartan Kids Races – an obstacle course race open to children ages 5 to 12. This is JJF’s first collaboration with the Spartan Foundation and Spartan Kids Race. Inspired by the popular Kids version of Spartan Race, the world’s best obstacle race, the Spartan Kids stand-alone race features 10-plus obstacles. Designed for kids ages 5-12, each obstacle is crafted to instill child-like adventure, courage, camaraderie and a sense of accomplishment. There will also be a heat for the Special Spartans, children with intellectual or developmental disabilities, and those with cognitive learning or vocational delays.
Throughout the day there will be DJs and bands performing, including: Harvey Cummings II and friends, featuring the HamilTones, Simplified, Caleb Davis, David Childers, and others, as well as a number of food trucks and vendors.
