IRON ATHLETE CHALLENGE

This Challenge is based on Ironman distances of 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26.2 mile run, which athletes complete in a single day. Here at the Y, we have taken the ideals of the Ironman and combined it with the workout possibilities offered each day. Participants have six weeks to complete the Challenge. Ironman distances combined with a Y mentality makes for a great workout plan!

RELAY TEAMS

Members are welcome to participate in relay teams of up to 3 people. Each team will have one recording sheet. Please turn in one (1) registration form with your team name. All participants must sign the waiver, and fee must be paid in full upon registration.

RULES

Everyone must adhere to the 30 minute time limit on Wellness Center cardio machines. If you would like more time, we encourage you to visit the Wellness Center during “slow” times.

Youth ages 12-15 years old must complete Teen Orientation prior to using the Wellness Center.

All participants in relay teams must complete at least 30 miles, run, bike or swim combined.

We encourage you to try something new, but if you are uncomfortable with swimming or running, you can replace those miles with other activities.

Participants must log workouts within 24 hours to allow accurate standings each week. Please include the time you finished your workout.

Participants may work out together and record individual miles.

To achieve the 26.2 mile run:
Participants can run outside or on the treadmill, attend a land fitness class, use the elliptical, rower, AMT or walk.

To achieve the 112 mile bike:
Participants can bike in or outdoor or attend a spin class.
