Step into Fitness and Fun in Kannapolis

Step into fitness with the Loop the Loop program

Earn prizes while walking, running or biking with the Loop the Loop Program!

The City of Kannapolis’ Loop the Loop Program is a fun way to track the distance of your walk, run, or bike ride.

Loop the Loop is part of the City’s Discover a Healthy Life Initiative and the Cabarrus Health Alliance REACH Program. The goal is to bring a friend, meet new friends, and enjoy the scenic downtown including West Avenue Park and Atrium Health Ballpark (which is open to the public year round), Kannapolis parks including Village Park, Bakers Creek Park, Veterans Park, Vietnam Veterans Park, and Walter M. Safrit Park, as well as greenways like Bakers Creek, Irish Buffalo Creek, and 8th Street, all while exercising. There are also loops at all of the Kannapolis City Schools. It’s a way to enjoy a healthy physical and social lifestyle.

How Does It Work?

🏃‍♂️ Register online and then track your walk, run, or bike ride in Kannapolis to earn exciting prizes for every completed mile.

Route distances are designated by different colors. Signage and sidewalk markers aid you as you complete the loops around downtown Kannapolis and at each Kannapolis school.
