Join the Behrend Digital Dash ~ May 15-17

If social distancing has you feeling cooped up, Penn State Behrend’s Alumni office is sponsoring a fun way for you to get outdoors and connect with the Behrend community (remotely, of course) — the Penn State Behrend Digital Dash 5K

All runners, joggers, walkers, and rollers are invited to join in the college’s first-ever virtual 5K race on May 15-17. This race is open to all Penn State Behrend alumni, students, faculty, staff, and family.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Register by emailing Kristen at kcc146@psu.edu. Include your name, affiliation with Behrend, and the names of anyone else in your circle participating.
  2. Run, jog, walk, or roll a 5K on your own (6 feet apart, please!) any time between Friday, May 15, though Sunday, May 17.
  3. Submit your times to kcc146@psu.edu.

A few notes:

There is no cost to participate. It’s free!

If you wear Behrend gear during your run, organizers will shave ten seconds off your finish time! They want proof though: just take a photo before or after your run and tag it with #BehrendDigitalDash on Facebook or Instagram. (You can also email it to kcc146@psu.edu if you don’t do social media). They’ll do the math on your submitted time.

There are prizes! The overall winner and five other randomly selected participants will receive a gift from Behrend Athletics.

Happy running!
