Swim Challange

1/1/24 - 12/31/24

With the Reading YMCA turning 166 in 2024, we are setting the bar high this year to see if you can swim a lap for every year the Y has been around!

Whether that be doggy paddling twice a week or freestyle every morning, we want to see if you have what it takes to complete this challenge and help celebrate the Reading YMCA’s 166 birthday!

The 100/166 Mile Swim Challenges are a year-long challenge that can be done anytime during open lap swim time.

Start Date: January 1, 2024

Cost: YMCA Members – one time $15 for the year cost

Cost: Non-Members – one time $25 for the year cost (day pass payment still needed each day)

Age Group: Must be 16 years of age at the start of the program
