2023 lapra fitness challenge

The Los Angeles Police Relief Association (LAPRA) 2023 Fitness Challenge is underway with walking, running and cycling challenges and the biggest cash awards ever for winning individuals and teams - totaling nearly $100,000!


Now in its 15th year, the Fitness Challenge brings active LAPD sworn and civilian employees together for fun, friendly competition to encourage movement and long-term healthy lifestyles. In 2022, LAPRA introduced new Activity Challenges, and more than 600 participants from 25 teams logged a total of 160,142 miles. The Activity Challenges will be back for 2023, but the Weight Loss Challenge will be discontinued as the focus shifts from weight loss to increasing daily physical activity. Moreover, the Activity Challenges are open to all interested participants, whether they want to lose weight or just move more.


The 2023 Fitness Challenge will begin on Sunday, April 2 and run through Saturday, June 24. As in 2022, the Activity Challenges will comprise four segments; each segment will run for three weeks. Challenge participants will again use the My Virtual Mission (MVM) mobile app to report the number of miles completed each day. Participants can send distances completed to the MVM website from apps or wearables such as Runkeeper, Strava, Fitbit and others. No manual entries will be accepted. If you use a treadmill or stationary bicycle, you must use a tracking device that has a setting for treadmills or stationary bikes.
