Virtual 5K

October 18-22 | Participate Anytime

Join the APU community as we virtually run/walk together. Lace up those shoes, experience the great outdoors, and run or walk in your neighborhood, on a hiking trail, around a track…the options are endless! If you aren’t able to run or walk, we invite you to wear your registration APU Alumni gear and give a cheer of support. Your registration fee includes a kit with a runner’s hat, fanny pack, and bib.

We also want to hear about your 5K success! Share with us on the online Leader Board. Participants that finish the APU 5K will be entered for a chance to win one of several giveaways!
