YMCA Families On! Challenge

April 27, 2019

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 an up-to 2.5-mile race, participants tackle more than 12 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.

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.
