On 27 May 2016, CFB Borden hosted Health and Fitness day at the Base. Sponsored by Personnel Support Programs (PSP), the event was designed to raise awareness of the importance of health and fitness to the defence community.
One of the day's events was 4-hour spin class marathon; teams consisting of two members would take turns pedaling while attempting to obtain the highest caloric consumption.
