#TreadmillTuesday Challenge

The First Coast YMCA and the Tampa YMCA will go head to head again on March 27 in a #TreadmillTuesday Tiebreaker.

Jacksonville and Tampa are 1-1 in this friendly competition that inspires community members to become more physically active and adopt healthier lifestyles. The community that completes the most treadmill miles in 12 hours wins! 

Participation in this year’s event also supports Safety Around Water, the Y’s drowning prevention program for at-risk children on the First Coast. Visit the Welcome Center at your YMCA for more details.

This is a FREE event that’s open to the entire community! KidZone is available for non-members during Treadmill Tuesday.

How to Participate at the Y

  • Visit your neighborhood YMCA on March 27 between 6:30am-6:30pm (non-members need to bring a photo ID)
  • Run/Walk/Jog on the treadmill for 30 minutes
  • Record your distance with a representative on the wellness floor
  • Distances will be totaled by branch and then combined for each association

Community members who can’t make it to the Y that day can also join the competition via social media.
