JUNEAU - Alaskans participating in a national fitness challenge logged enough physical activity this spring to put the state in first place.

The state beat out second-place Arkansas by a 3-to-2 margin in the two-month National President's Challenge.

Adults had to do at least 30 minutes of physical activity five days a week for six weeks. Children had to complete at least 60 minutes of activity a day.

The governor's office said Alaska, with 2,868 participants, had the highest per capita rate of participation among all states.
