Virtual Run/Walk

A virtual run is an event that can be run (or walked) from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, on the trail, on the treadmill, at the gym or on the track (or even at another race). You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. You can record your activity of choice any day and time, but you must submit you results by 11:59 PM ON SATURDAY, 10/9/21.

TEAM CHALLENGE: Alumni vs. Students vs. Supporters

NEW to the 2021 CU Homecoming 5k is the inaugural Team Challenge to determine if the Alumni, Students or Supporters will hoist the trophy and have bragging right for a full year!

HOW IT WORKS: Races are scored by assigning a point value for the place a runner finishes in. If a runner finishes first, he/she will earn 1 point. i.e. Finishing 25th would usually earn 25 points. The Team Challenge scoring is similar to golf in that the lowest score wins. A perfect score is 15 points, with the top five runners occupying the first five finishing positions. 

  • While only the top 5 runners “score” for their team, the sixth and seventh placed runners also receive a score. Their points can be valuable since they may increase the score of an opposing team by placing in front of that team’s top five runners. The score of the sixth and seventh runners might also be used for tie breaking.
  • Runners who do not have a team of at least five runners are removed from the results for scoring purposes.
  • If a meet allows more than seven runners in a race, the runners that placed eight or higher within their team are removed from the results for scoring purposes.
  • In the event of a tie between two or more teams, the place of the sixth place runners are compared. If only one team has a sixth runner then that team wins.
  • If all teams have only five runners, then the score of the top 4 runners is used.

*Team Challenge is for in-person registrants only. Each team is co-ed.
