Virtual 5K

Join our URecFit Strava Club to track distance, pace, and elevation gain for many different activities. The app is free and can track activities like running, cycling, and swimming. You do not need to be a URecFit member to participate in these runs or to activate a Strava Account

We will be running our Monthly 5K's from home or in your neighborhood! Use the Strava app to track your run, cycle, or swim and post it to your account to keep track of overall activity. Feel free to post photos of your run, but please do not post a photo of your map.

Here is the link to our Virtual 5K club on Strava: https://www.strava.com/clubs/URecFit5K. Once you make an account, you can begin using the app. Creating goals will help you manage your activity levels to maintain a safe and effective training program. You can also challenge your colleagues in Strava to meet goals.
