A 5K route of your choice
It’s that time of the year for some festive cheer. Join Team ARU for our Festive 5K Fun Run!
Wear your best festive gear such as a Santa hat or your favourite Christmas jumper and take to the streets to do your 5K. We would like as many people as possible to join us between 1 and 13 December to either run, walk, or jog your own 5K route.
As we can’t all gather together, we would like to bring you all together on social media to share some festive cheer. Before, during or after your 5K:
We would like all of the ARU Community to get involved, so are calling on all students, staff, alumni and members of the community to join our Festive 5K. Whether you want to take a leisurely stroll, achieve a personal best, complete a challenge, or something in-between, you can wake up early to enjoy the sunrise or take the dog out for a walk at dusk – this event is for everyone.
We encourage you all to fundraise for a local or national charity that means something to you. In the current climate charities need all of our support.
Well done for taking part in the Festive 5K.
If you walked the 5K and are looking for your next challenge, join Team ARU in the New Year as we launch our Couch to 5K programme.
We would like to bring together runners from across the Anglia Ruskin University community. Join us on Strava to continue your running achievements and meet other runners. All you have to do is:
We continue to closely monitor the rapidly evolving situation around coronavirus (COVID-19). So we can best protect the health and wellbeing of all members of the community we are suspending many public-facing events on campus until further notice. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
