New year, new you, find activities to start your year on the right foot! It's important to keep healthy habits year-round, and if you need inspiration to start, or an excuse to mix it up, these New Year's Day events are perfect for you! Fitness and nature events happen year-round in Pitt County, and you can find them on our events calendar.

Fleet Feet is hosting their Restart 5k, a family-friendly race that will have no clock and where all are welcome! there is no fee for entry, but they do ask for a donation of dry dog food for the Dog Food Pantry. If you are looking for a consistent run club, Fleet Feet hosts a run club twice a week throughout the year on Mondays at M'Pourium and Wednesdays at Uptown Brewing Company! 

If you want a slower start to the day, have a stretch and set good intentions with Yoga Strong. They are hosting a New Year's Day Yoga Marathon from 9am - noon, and offering multiple classes throughout the day.

Another good way to start the new year is out in nature. Take a walk around any of our beautiful parks such as Wildwood Park, Town Common, or River Park North! For a guided experience in the outdoors, take a 2-mile trail and explore River Park North on their guided First Day Hike!
