What is "Challenge Day"
"Challenge Day" is a nationwide sports event put on by the Sasakawa Sports Foundation to encourage community building and promote healthy living amongst residents.
Each year on the last Wednesday of May, two cities of similar size and population compete to see which city can get a higher participation rate. Anyone who participates in 15 minutes or more of physical exercise on the day of the event can log their time and contribute to the city's overall score.
▶ DATE: May 25 (Wednesday) Midnight ~ 9:00PM
▶ OPPONENT: Naruto City, Tokushima Prefecture
*this will be Naruto City's 13th Challenge Day. They had an impressive 59.3% participation rate last year. Fujiyoshida City was successful in beating Kyotango City in Kyoto Prefecture last year. We are looking forward to another victory this year and look forward to getting as many participants as possible.
