Big Blue Family Virtual Fun Run


Register HERE for the UK Parent and Family Association's Big Blue Family Virtual Fun Run (5K) on Saturday, September 12, 2020!


What is a virtual run?

A virtual run can be completed at any location and any time on the day of the event. Simply choose your location to run, walk, jog, roll, or even hop on a treadmill to complete the 5K (3.1 miles) at your own pace while being sure to stay at least 6 feet away from others at all times. So, take this opportunity to get out of your house, apartment, or residence hall and get moving with your friends and family.


Register for FREE.

Participation in the virtual run is FREE and open to all UK students, families, and friends. Every family who registers for the run will receive a virtual runner's bib that can be downloaded, printed, and worn during the event, and a virtual certificate of participation will be emailed after the event. Family teams can include students, parents, grandparents, siblings, neighbors, friends, roommates and anyone you consider family. Families teams who register together do not have to be located in the same place. You can participate from home while your student participates with friends on campus.
