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.

How to take part

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:

  1. Complete a 5K wearing your best festive outfit between 1 - 13 December
  2. Post & tag a picture on social media using @team_aru (preferably Instagram)
  3. Use the hashtag #ARUFestive5K

Who can get involved?

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.
