Lace up your running shoes and collect kilometres for the RUB. From 8 to 10 May, the University Sports Bochum is organising the UNIC Run.
The Europe Day on 9th of May wants to promote and celebrate peace and unity in Europe and to invite to get active for European values. In order to get as many students, employees and alumni of the universities from the UNIC network moving as possible on the occasion of this day, the Ruhr University Bochum has launched the UNIC Run.
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.
For all those who would like to take part in the UNIC run together with other RUB members, the UNIC student representative of the RUB Yazgi Yilmaz is offering a meeting point in front of the entrance of the Student Service Centre (SSC) on 9 May at 10 am. The plan is for participants of different abilities to join together there to collect kilometres for the RUB. Questions about the meeting point can be sent to Yazgi Yilmaz via the email address email@example.com.
