Muscle of the Month: FITNESS CENTER ULTRA MARATHON

  • Location: Fitness Center
  • Time: 6:00am - 10:30pm

An ultra marathon is a race defined as any running event longer than the traditional marathon race distance of 42 kilometers, or 26.1 miles. Every year, millions of people participate in these races across the nation. Running and walking are great cardiovascular exercises, targeting all the major muscle groups of the legs. Cardiovascular exercise promotes a healthy heart, lungs, and vascular system.

Rules:

  • Notify a FC Attendant before you begin
