Anyone can run underwater!
(even if you can't run on land)

Don't worry that you can't run 26.2 or even 3 miles on land. On a HydroWorx underwater treadmill— literally anyone can do it.

Marc, a Randolph YMCA member, has had a total of 9 knee surgeries, including 3 total knee replacements. He was barely able to walk up stairs, let alone exercise or run on land. Through the use of the underwater treadmill he now runs on the HydroWorx underwater treadmill 3-4 times a week! Watch Marc's Story below.

Here's why and how YOU can do it:

  • Water’s buoyancy take away 80% of your body weight (a 200 lb. person is approximately 40 lbs. on the underwater treadmill)
  • Water’s hydrostatic pressure helps remove lactic acid and metabolic waste by optimally "flushing" the lymphatic and cardiovascular system — so, you won’t be sore during or after!
  • The Marathon pool for the event will be a perfect 86-88 degrees so the run will be both enjoyable and therapeutic
  • The HydroWorx underwater treadmills have an adjustable speed control so you can pick your ideal pace
