Competitors Sought for Hillsborough's Active Life Games
Hillsborough County, Fla. (Aug. 22, 2019) - Exercise is great for the body and mind, but is particularly important as we age. The Active Life Games, organized by Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation, help promote physical and mental fitness through an Olympic-style competition that attracts hundreds of adults age 50 and older each year.
The 39th annual competition continues the tradition of offering a variety of contests for all skill and fitness levels. Events range from track and field to cycling to pickleball to billiards, dominoes, and horseshoes. Some of the more than two dozen events are qualifiers for state competition.
Registration costs $15 for one event, or $25 for unlimited events. There is an additional $25 charge for those participating in the golf competition, which includes a cart. This year's Games will be held Oct. 7-18.
In addition to being a lot of fun and a great way to stay in shape, the Games serve as a regional qualifier for the Florida Senior Games.
Registration and a complete schedule of events can be found online.
