The IRONJAY CHALLENGE is an annual fitness challenge at Elizabethtown College where students, faculty, staff and alumni track their own physical activity throughout the semester to complete either the FULL JAY (140.6 miles) or the HALF JAY (70.3 miles).  

Prizes

  • HALF JAY (70.3 miles) = Beanie hat
  • FULL JAY (140.6 miles) = Long-Sleeve T-shirt

How did we come up with the IRONJAY mileage?

The IRONJAY CHALLENGE is based on the “IRONMAN” competition which is a triathalon that adds up to 140.6 miles. Our competition is for all Blue Jays, so we changed the name to IRONJAY, but kept the same mileage, get it? 

Sign up to complete the Iron Jay Challenge HERE

To track your miles, download our Iron Jay Tracking Sheet. Completed tracking sheets can be submitted to the Hub or emailed to efit@etown.edy by November 17, 2017. 

 

What counts towards my miles?

Every mile of walking, running, swimming, biking, elliptical-ing etc. counts towards your total for the challenge. Participants can also include other physical activities such as playing soccer, gardening, or aerobics towards their total mileage. Check out the Activity Conversion Chart
