The YMCA Families On! Challenge is presented by Delta Airlines

The YMCA Families On! Challenge is a fun, family race specifically designed for all ages and athletic abilities. Family, friends, co-workers, and teammates experience a unique race theme, “Everything You Can’t Do at Home.”

Over the course of a 2+ mile race, participants tackle more than 12 games and obstacles that include, throwing paint on walls, jumping over a huge 20-foot green sofa, having a massive food fight and much more. Families sign up for a specific time to start the race throughout the day.

All participants get a Families On! Challenge shirt!

After completing the race, families can spend the day touring the farm and enjoying games, activities and food trucks as part of the Celebration Station.
