The Commuter Challenge Planning Committee — RiverStone Health, City of Billings, CTA Architects Engineers and Well Pared — recently announced details of the 2019 Billings Commuter Challenge.
The Commuter Challenge is a free month-long friendly competition designed to promote active transportation and healthy lifestyles. Participants are encouraged to leave their car at home and run, walk, roll, bicycle or ride the bus to work, school, play or to other daily errands. Participants log their trips online to compete for prizes based on the number of days they commute. Lucky’s Market sponsors this year’s prizes. The challenge, in its seventh year, will run the entire month of June.
According to a press release from the committee, registrants in the Billings Commuter Challenge can also take advantage of local incentives for discounts on meals, services and more for those who actively commute to the local business.
The Commuter Challenge kicks off on Friday, May 31, with a neighborhood block party in the parking lot of CTA, located at 13 N. 23rd St. The event will feature free food, drinks, live music by Angie Langeliers and fun family activities from 5 to 7 p.m.
On Friday, June 14, Walk and Roll to Work Day will be celebrated with a free commuter breakfast from 7:30 to 9 a.m., sponsored by Billings Clinic and located taking place under its skybridge on Ninth Avenue North.
