Jack Frost Challenge – Are You Up for the Challenge?

The Jack Frost Challenge is a free, weeklong winter challenge for all Manitobans! From February 13 to 19, 2022, Green Action Centre invites all Manitobans of any age group to participate by gathering up a team of 1 to 5 people of family members, friends, or coworkers to complete 130 collective kilometres of outdoor activities!

How Does the Challenge Work?

During the Challenge, you can walk, run, bike, skate, ski, snowshoe, toboggan and participate in any outdoor activities to work towards collective kilometres, all the while enjoying Manitoba’s breathtaking scenery and thrilling adventures with your team! Not only that, but you also have multiple chances to win some great prizes too!

Register for The Jack Frost Challenge

First things first! You have to sign up. To be entered into the Challenge, you have to register yourself or your team on Green Action Centre’s website. Follow this link to sign up!

How Many Kilometres Do You Need During the Jack Frost Challenge?

The 130-kilometre goal is a collective goal for your team/yourself to strive towards, but it is not a minimum. Even logging a few activities throughout the week will qualify you for participation prizes, or if you meet 26km during the Challenge, you will be eligible for the grand prizes!

How To Track Your Kilometres?

Tracking your km is a piece of cake! All you have to use is an activity tracking watch, Strava or even Google Maps. After you have finished your adventure, input your km on Green Action Centre’s website, where it says “Log Kilometres.”

Alternativity, if you do not have access to a smartphone or computer, you may provide your kilometres in-person to a selected team coordinator who could use the ‘bulk entry’ function to input your kilometres for you. If this is not possible, you can mail Green Action Centre your kilometres and modes. For more information on tracking your kilometres without the use of a device, please visit their website.

The Prizes

The Jack Frost Challenge also has TONS of prizes up for grabs! This year there are TWO grand prizes! Participants that complete their fair share of at least 26km during the week of February 13-19, 2022, will be entered to win this prize pack:
