The 100 Mile Swim Club is a member-only swim challenge that helps Y members push themselves to their limits in the water. The 100 Mile Swim Club allows members to set a goal of how many miles they need to swim each month to make it to the 100-mile mark by the last day of the year.
So if you're a member of the Y, love to swim and wouldn't mind pushing yourself to reach that goalpost, this challenge is tailor-made for your lifestyle! This exclusive club is open to all Y members who have what it takes to swim the distance in our pool.
How far is 100 miles, you ask? Let’s start smaller. The competitive swimming standard for 1 mile is 1,650 yards. Rounding up, it breaks down to 3,173.1 yards per week, 452.05 yards a day. The numbers may seem daunting, but when broken down over the course of a year, they’re not so bad. You might already be swimming 100 miles and not know it!

The competitive swimming standard for 1 mile is 1,650 yards. Miles are tracked on the honor system, and you can swim your miles at any of our YMCA locations with pools.
Swim at your own pace or log your miles on the pool deck. The goal is to swim 100 miles in a year and to challenge yourself and fellow Y swimmers to new fitness levels. Laps from other area pools can be logged as part of the 100 miles.
