The days are getting longer, the temperature is on the rise, and the walk to class is bearable. Spring is coming and so are exams, registration for the fall, AND, more importantly, the Step Into Spring With Lourdes Challenge. The faculty and staff at Lourdes are challenging the student body to rack up as many miles walking and/or running during the month of March.

What's in it for you?

Besides getting outdoors for some health and fitness, you get a sweet tumbler for beverages! If only the tumbler were it, but there is much more to this challenge!!!

  • 20 oz Lourdes Gray Wolf Challenge Tumbler (double-wall insulated with a clear lid)
  • Challenges For Motivation To Get Those Miles In
  • Gray Wolf Badges When Challenges Are Met To Stick On The Tumbler And Show Off In The Dining Hall
  • Chance For Lourdes SWAG And Other Prizes For Specific Challenges
  • LOW, LOW Cost!!! (Nuff Said)

When does all the fun begin?

The clock starts on February 28th, so get signed up to make the most of your time. The challenge officially ends on Sunday, April 3rd at 11:59 PM. This is a total of 5 weeks to move those legs in a serious manner!

Lourdes University has set up a private Strava Club for this challenge, where all your miles will be tracked through your device. If you don't have a Strava account, you can create a free one to use for the event.

This is a simple challenge of accumulating miles over the 5 weeks with only a few basic rules:
  1. Challenge miles need to be either walking or running miles.
  2. Only miles synced in the Step Into Spring With Lourdes Strava Club will be counted for badges, prizes, challenges, and contests.
  3. You can use your phone to track (Strava App), or a GPS watch because they both sync to Strava.

* Registration will remain open through March 6th.
