Homecoming Virtual 5K

Monday, September 21, 2020 to Saturday, September 26, 2020

Love to run? Bike? Kayak? Join your WPI herd for a Virtual 5K during Homecoming 2020! This virtual “race” can be done anywhere and in any way you choose. After your 5K, share your route and photos on social so we can congratulate you! You can add your photo to our Padlet album (no account needed), post it on social tagging @WPI and @WPIAlumni and using #WPIHomecoming, or email it to us at alumni-office@wpi.edu

How to Participate:

  • Register for the 5K online – you will receive a race bib once you have registered!
  • Choose your mode and route. You may already have a favorite place or route, but here are a few options just in case you don’t:
    • Look for an established route - public parks or bike paths often have routes with pre-marked distances
    • Run around an athletic track - 12.5 laps on a 400m track are the equivalent of a 5K
    • Use a route mapping website like Map My Run, USATF - America's Running Routes, or WalkJogRun
  • Complete your 5K during Homecoming week - September 21 through 26 - and pat yourself on the back!
  • Add your photo to our Padlet album (no account needed), post it on social tagging @WPI and @WPIAlumni and using #WPIHomecoming, or email it to us at alumni-office@wpi.edu.
