The Tour de France is one of the most followed races in the world.  Running from Saturday, July 4 to Sunday, July 26, the 102nd Tour de France will be made up of 21 stages and will cover a total distance of 2,087 miles.

We will be racing from Monday, July 6-July 26 or until all the teams are finished.  Our teams will be lead by a staff member and 9 members making up their team.  Each team will help earn miles to complete the 2,087 miles across France.

Miles can be earned through any form of cardio: biking, walking, swimming, running, even group exercise!  These exercises do not have to be performed at the Y.  So get outdoors and get creative!  The first team to cross the finish line will be crowned champions!
