Run for your university
With the UNIC Run, students, staff and alumni alike are called upon to lace up their running shoes. Within a given time window (08th-10th May), the aim is to cover as many kilometres as possible on foot within 60 minutes - both for themselves and for their own university.
Ideally, all participants together collect a total of 11.222 km, which is the sum of airline-distances between UNIC-Universities. In addition to attractive prizes for those who individually cover the greatest distance in 60 minutes, the best university will also be crowned.
It does not matter whether the full hour is exhausted. The important thing is to move at all and thus collect kilometres for your own university location and at the same time contribute to the total number of kilometres. Afterwards, simply track your result with a smartwatch or running app, take a photo or a screenshot and submit it online.
