Digital 5k Fun Run Challenge

    • The 2020 A-Week 5k Fun Run has gone virtual! We are bringing to you a virtual 5K to get out and stay fit while social distancing. A virtual race is a race 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. This virtual option is great because you get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself.

    • Take the virtual tour to take a closer look at the University of Arkansas campus and residence halls for yourself. The tour includes videos, 360 pictures, videos, testimonials from student leaders, and a brief message from our Chancellor.
