Looking for some motivation to stay fit? The Alumni Office is offering a new way to get exercise and stay connected to TXWES – the first ever Virtual Wesleyan 5K! From Oct. 24 – 31, participants can run or walk the length of the course any time they choose. This is a great way to participate in a TXWES event at your own pace. Interested but still have questions? Check out these FAQs below:
How does a virtual 5K work?
Participants register online prior to the event week and receive a bib number. During the week of the 5K, participants time themselves running or walking the length of the course and submit their times to the event site. You determine where and when you want to complete the length of the course!
How are winners determined?
Since we are on the honor system, virtual 5Ks are more about beating your own time instead of others. We will list time results on the race site.
Do I get anything with my registration?
Yes! Race giveaways will be mailed to all participants. This year, everyone gets awesome custom socks! You can even earn more prizes by recruiting others to register.
Are there plans for another on-campus Wesleyan 5K?
Yes! This year’s race had to be postponed, but we are planning to hold our next in-person Wesleyan 5K on March 6, 2021. In fact, you can save $5 per person by registering for both events at once!
We hope you’ll join us for this fun, new event!
