What is the Silver Chain Challenge?

The Silver Chain Challenge is a friendly competition between Renfrew County and Lanark County to inspire and promote more active and healthier communities.

Silver Chain partners, and our growing list of partners from across Eastern Ontario, are inviting residents and visitors of all participating municipalities to compete for the most number of kilometres biked, walked, run and wheeled over the month of June. So dust off your bikes and lace up your shoes to participate in any and all forms of active transportation!

2018 marks more than 5 years that the Challenge has been issued. Our health and community partners are joining the municipalities to promote and challenge residents and visitors of all participating municipalities to be more active, healthy, engaged and safe.

From June 1 through 30, participating municipal residents can log their kilometres — whether walking or biking.

The benefits are huge: improved mental and physical health, safer roads, improved social connections, vibrant and healthier communities, stronger local economy, and engaged and active community.

A hearty challenge to all outdoor and active transportation enthusiasts: clock your kilometres and join us to inspire healthier, stronger and safer communities!

Participate as an individual, family, school class or group.
