Join alumni, students, and members of the Harvard community from across the world for a virtual 5K—your way! Sign up today to run, jog, walk, cycle, or roll between Thursday, November 12, and Monday, November 16.
Participation is simple—yet meaningful. Here are a few easy steps:
- Complete the registration form. As part of your registration, you’ll have the opportunity to make a donation to support financial aid for Harvard College students. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, financial aid is more critical than ever. Your support allows us to meet our undergraduates’ changing needs as they arise and ensure all of our students have equal access to a Harvard education, whether on campus or at home.
- Get ready to move! Start by checking out the resources curated by Harvard Professor Daniel E. Lieberman and Bob Manson MPA ’04, HAA volunteer and longtime runner, including sample training plans, research and articles, and inspirational videos. While you are there, download your print-at-home racing bib.
- Get out there! Between Thursday, November 12, and Monday, November 16, complete your 5K—your way! Remember, you can choose to move any way you like and go any distance you prefer—it can be shorter or longer than 3.1 miles! Before you hit the road, please be sure to review and follow social distancing and public health guidelines in your community.
- Share a sweaty selfie with us! Tag @harvardalumni and use the hashtag #HarvardMoves. We’ll be collecting and sharing everything we see. We’d love to hear what inspired you to get moving.
