About Manayunk Fit Fest & Fitness Week
Known for decades as a cycling town, Manayunk has, in the last few years, become home to 18 fitness-related businesses. From personal training to yoga, boot camp to boxing, and cycling to kayaking, Manayunk has it all. We want to celebrate and promote our booming fitness initiative with an all-day Fit Fest including our first-time event Walk the Wall, followed by Manayunk Fitness Week.
The first ever Fit Fest will take place on June 1st, 2013 from 9AM until 3PM in the Levering Street Parking Lot. During the festival, visitors will participate in FREE live 30-minute workout classes, enjoy on-site health consultations, explore the trails along the Tow Path, and Walk The Wall! This is a family friendly event and will offer kid friendly fitness activities as well! Don't forget to come dressed in your fitness best!
The Fit Fest will kick-off Manayunk Fitness Week which will run from Sunday June 2nd thru Friday June 7th. While at the festival, you will have the chance to purchase a Fitness Week Pass that allows you to get one free class at each participating studio an d discounts at fitness retailers throughout the district for the whole week. This is the perfect opportunity to try a new gym or class you haven't tried yet in town!
Fitness Week Passes will be sold for $25, with all proceeds going directly to Neighborhood Bike Works
, which is a nonprofit organization that seeks to increase educational, recreational, and career building opportunities for urban youth in undeserved neighborhoods in the greater Philadelphia area. It also promotes cycling as a healthy and affordable lifestyle. Also, when you purchase a Fitness Week Pass, you will have the choice of a red, blue, or green MNYK backpack and water bottle!
About Walk The Wall
We all know that people come from all around the globe to challenge themselves on a bicycle against our world famous Manayunk Wall. Well now everyone can take the challenge and participate in our first annual, family friendly, Walk The Wall fundraiser. Walk The Wall is a hyper local event focused on raising much needed funds for non-profit organizations located right her in Manayunk and Roxborough. This year proceeds will benefit Journey's Way, the Manayunk Roxborough Food Co-Op, North Light Community Center, and the Roxborough YMCA. We encourage you to invite your friends and family to Walk The Wall for one of these great causes!
Walk The Wall is part of Manayunk Fit Fest and "walkers" may Walk The Wall anytime during the event. Walk The Wall is NOT a timed event and "walkers" need not complete the course in order to participate. Check-in will be at the Fit Fest located in the Levering Lot. "Walkers" will receive a snack, a beverage, a "Walk The Wall" button and their choice of either a red, blue, or green MNYK backpack or water bottle. The Wall begins at the base of Levering Street at Cresson and climbs to the top of the wall at Lyceum and Manayunk Avenues.
Rain or shine Manayunk Fit Fest will still happen (classes may be moved to inside)! As a fitness event, make sure you dress in your fitness best, since you will have the opportunity to join in on free classes! Also with the temperatures rising, make sure you stay hyrdated during the event. If you are participating in Walk The Wall, and the weather does not cooperate, you can still come to the MDC office after Saturday and pick up your free backpack and water bottle!
