July Run/Walk Challenge

July 5 - August 1

GW Campus Recreation is holding a Run/Walk Challenge to help encourage all GW students, faculty, and staff to stay active during the summer. The challenge is for walkers, runners, joggers, and everyone in between! The challenge will begin on July 5th and end on August 1st. All participants will be entered into a raffle for prizes. 

There will be a kick-off event on Monday, July 5th at 6pm EST for participants to connect, learn about the challenge, and build some habits for the month. The kick-off event will end with a raffle. There will be a concluding event on Thursday, July 29th at 6pm EST for participants to reflect on the month and brainstorm how to integrate their habits into life-long routines. 

You will be added to the calendar invites following registration.

*Important Notes*

  • The Nike Run Club App customer service is often the best place to get help on run uploads and any bugs. Unfortunately, we don't have access to the back end of the app to help you.
  • For most states and localities, social distancing guidelines are still in place. Check your locality's COVID-19 orders to make sure you know the most up-to-date information.
