August 19, 2015


Northridge — The Student Recreation Center at the University Student Union in- vites all SRC members to the first ever Fall Swim Challenge. Swimming is a good work- out with its own reward, so the chance to also win an award is a nice potential bonus.

“The Fall Swim Challenge is a great way to engage SRC members who are looking for a low impact workout, but still want to see fitness results,” said SRC Aquatics Coordi- nator Ryan Hairapetian “At each distance milestone, participants will be awarded with various prizes.”

Registration for the Fall Swim Challenge will be available from Monday, Aug. 17 to Monday, Sept. 28. All participants can start the challenge on Tuesday, Sept. 1 and con- tinue adding to their total distance through Monday, Oct. 5. This event is free for all SRC members. The challenge is to swim as many laps as you can at the SRC Rec Pool. The more laps you swim, the more you win.

Prizes will be awarded to members who complete various distance sets. Interested SRC member can register for the Fall Swim Challenge through the Netpulse app or at the SRC Aquatics tabling station near the rock wall in the SRC.
