Join Ole Miss Campus Recreation & Oxford-Lafayette County Chamber of Commerce for a Virtual 5K on April 25th!
Run, Walk, or Roll Your Way to a 5K! Wherever you are, whenever you can. Everyone in the Lafayette/Oxford/University Community is invited to this fun and free event. We can keep our fitness levels high while practicing social distancing. We are apart, together.
Here's how it works:
1. Before race day: determine your 5K (3.1 mile) course route and train for your race. Click here for a great training resource and click here to search routes in your area. Choose an area that is not crowded, such as your neighborhood. Be sure to understand and follow the resolutions and/or ordinances in your community regarding social distancing.
2. On race day (April 25): at any time that day, run, walk, or roll 3.1 miles while tracking your stats using a fitness tracker or fitness app. Be sure to stay 6-10 feet away from other racers. If you see more than 10 people in any area, please adjust your route so that participants remain spread out. Several free apps are available on the app store, including MapMyRun, Runkeeper, and Runtastic. Alternatively, you can complete your race on a treadmill and take a photo of your screen.
3. After you complete your race, upload your results by posting a screenshot of your app or treadmill screen. Click here for a video tutorial on how to do that. You can include an optional photo of yourself at the finish. If you post to your social media, please tag us @olemisscr and @oxfordmschamber so we can share pics on our social media platforms! You will have 24 hours to post your results.
4. Prizes will be awarded to top finishers in each age and gender category.
