“Safe Fun-Fit at the Bayfront” Offers Free 5K/10K and Fitness Classes This Weekend
Saturday, June 12, 2021
Many people enjoy biking, running, jogging, and walking along the shoreline. However, due to COVID-19, social distancing on the narrow pathway has been challenging. To increase physical activity and promote a healthier Corpus Christi, City Manager Peter Zanoni has created a new health and wellness initiative to take place along the Corpus Christi Bayfront on Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Safe Fun-Fit at the Bayfront kicked off on June 6, 2020. The Fitness Lane spanning 1.5 miles for residents to bike, run, jog, and walk along the Bayfront. The route begins along the seawall at The Water’s Edge, northbound, towards the American Bank Center with the turnaround just before the barge dock entrance.
Classes are offered through a partnership with VFit Productions, a local company devoted to promoting a healthy lifestyle, and the City's Parks & Recreation Department. The City is also proud to announce our community partnership with H-E-B which will provide fruit and water. Participants are encouraged to bring their own sunblock, yoga mat, and water, as appropriate, for their workout. Exercise and wellness events are held on Saturdays at The Water’s Edge (402 S. Shoreline Boulevard). Pre-registration is required. This free program is for all skill levels, ages 8 and older. Youth ages 8 - 15 must be accompanied by an adult.
We invite you to give us your feedback and suggestions for this program on our short online survey, open now through June 30, 2021.
