CapU Virtual Run Club

CapU Virtual Run Club

Join our campus community in challenges to get you moving! With over 150 members, our CapU Strava Club is a great place to stay motivated (and maybe even win some prizes).

So far we have hosted a number of events: Virtual 5km Run/Walk, the Virtual Duathlon, the CapU Rec Summit Challenge, and the CapU Rec Week of Movement Challenge.

How to join?

Using the run-tracking app Strava, students and employees can sign up and join our CapU Virtual Run Club. With your Strava account, you can record your events outside on the roads and trails (or inside on a treadmill or bike) on the date of the event. The app will automatically track your route and log your entry when you record your activity.

There are 5 videos that vary in intensity; some have seated exercises and some are standing.
