Run Challenge, Week 1: The 5K

hosted by Intramural Sports and Campus Recreation

All Day
Zac Brost,
Keep active and virtually connected to fellow Huskers with the FREE Run Challenge. Week 1 activity: The 5K (3.1 miles).

Two easy steps to register & participate:
1. Go to the IM Leagues portal and log in to your account*.
2. Scroll to RUNNING and click ‘signup’ to register yourself for the 5k Challenge.

* Any UNL student, staff, and faculty can create an account with their MyRED credentials.

From March 30 to April 5, participants need to use a run tracker app or device - like Garmin; Runkeeper; Map My Run; and Strava - to record a 3.1 mile (5k) walk/jog/run. You can complete the activity from any location. It doesn’t need to be completed all at one time, but must be done by midnight Sunday night April 5 to successfully finish the challenge.

After finishing, email a screen shot from your run tracker showing your mileage plus a photo from your run location to Intramural Sports will record your results. Send your Instagram handle too with your submission; you’ll be tagged you if your photo is chosen.

On April 6, a winner will be selected from all the successful challengers and will receive an IM Sports Champion shirts.

Keep running & walking!
A new challenge is announced each subsequent week and your mileage is cumulative. Intramural Sports will track your overall mileage over the course of the entire running series—5K, 10K, half-marathon, marathon—and crown an overall champion. During Week 1, you don’t have to stop at 3.1 miles. You keep running and reporting all your miles.
