Swim to Spring Break with Campus RecreationHave you ever wondered how far it would take for you to swim to the beach, Disney World, or even Mexico? UAB Campus Rec is offering their Swim to Spring Break program, where you can log laps it would take for you to reach your dream spring break destination.

Start your journey on March 1 in the pool of the Campus Rec Center. Just pick your destination, and start swimming! Miles will be converted to laps meaning 1 mile travel distance = 1 lap length of the pool (25 yards). Participation is free and takes place throughout the month of March. Participants will self-record their distances in a binder in the pool area. Pick any of the destinations below and swim your way to spring break.

  1. Orange Beach, AL - 281 laps
  2. Disney World - 545 laps
  3. Nassau, Bahamas - 815 laps
  4. Key West, FL - 965 laps
  5. Grand Canyon - 1,634 laps
  6. Cancun, Mexico - 2,434 laps

For each destination completed you will receive a congratulatory digital postcard. By swimming the extra mile and completing 2 or more trips you can receive a custom swim cap! How far will you go to reach your Spring Break destination?
