UW Bothell Virtual Husky 5K

The UW Bothell Husky 5K has been reformatted as a virtual run! The run/walk is still set to occur on the original date, May 16, 2020. As an event that contributes to the support of local businesses and UW Bothell students, we have an exciting plan in place that carefully considers the health and wellness of our friends and fans while aiming for another successful year.

In its 15 years, sponsors and participants like you have raised more than $160,000 to support UW Bothell students. This year, the UW Bothell Alumni Council has chosen to direct the funds raised to the UW Bothell Student Emergency Fund, which is currently receiving a record number of applications from students experiencing financial hardship during this unprecedented COVID pandemic.

This new format will include exciting and deliberate ways to engage with other participants in a safe and healthy manner, observing guidelines regarding social distancing. You’ll receive a pre-race packet with a shirt, bib, and a few other surprises, share photos that’ll be live streamed throughout the day, participate in scavenger hunt (if you take it outdoors) or watch pre-recorded videos to run/walk/ride along (if you’re using a treadmill or stationary bike).
