Welcome to the Race Across America! This is an exercise incentive program where you or a team have 6 weeks to “travel” 2,800 miles from Los Angeles, California to New York City, New York. The more frequent you or team members come into the UFC to exercise, the more “miles” you will earn on your journey. The goal is to be the first team to make it to New York City.

Registration Form

  • Race Begins: Monday, May 02nd at 5AM and ends Wednesday, June 01th at 10PM
  • Teams can consist of as low as 1 member but may not exceed 5 members
  • You MUST have a Fitness Center employee validate your workout, which will earn you miles based on how many team members show up.
    • If you have 1 team member, each workout earns 100 points. If you have 2, each member’s workout earns 50 to still total 100. For 4, each earns 25, etc. So it’s best to have more of your team coming to work out!
    • Any form of exercise at the UFC counts towards mileage, not just weight room. This includes cardio, group fitness classes, boot camp, and swimming!
  • The checkpoints are as follows: Flagstaff, AZ (450mi), Albuquerque, NM (400mi), Amarillo, TX (280mi), Oklahoma City, OK (450mi), St Louis, MO (450mi), Indianapolis, IN (240mi), Pittsburgh, PA (360mi) and finally NYC, NY (365mi)
    • The first team to reach each checkpoint receives a prize and the first team to reach NYC will earn the Grand Prize and be crowned WINNER of the Race Across America!
