As the New Year begins why not join Masters Swimming Canada’s “Million Metre Challenge”?
The Million Metre Challenge is a Masters Swimming Canada program designed to promote swimming for health and fitness. The program encourages regular participation through tracking of cumulative distance swum and recognition as the swimmer reaches various milestones.
Registered swimmers record the distance swum in each workout and the system tracks their overall progress and calculates various statistics. When a swimmer reaches a milestone distance they receive the award for that distance.
The basic awards are: a certificate and swim cap at the 100,000m mark, a certificate, swim cap and pin at the 250,000m and 500,000m marks, and badge, pin and swim cap at the 1,000,000m mark. Depending on sponsorships MSC may add additional promotional awards.
Help keep your swimming on track (or just have some fun) by recording your swims online at http://mymsc.ca/Million.jsp
Right now CMSC is looking good on the leaderboard for January!
Let’s add a few more names to the list!
During Jeanne’s Swim on January 1 I managed to roll the odometer past the Million mark and I’m now sitting at 1,005,600, behind the 5 other CMSC swimmers who already passed the milestone. I know there are a lot of you who could hit the million a lot faster than I did.
