Students may use any of the running tracker apps Strava, Runkeeper, and Map My Run to log the distance they covered.
Within the three-day window, one can walk, jog, or run at his/her own pace and while strictly adhering to minimum health protocols prescribed by the national COVID-19 task force. The distance may also be covered using treadmill or a pedometer.
Document the experience using screenshots or photos of progress between Wednesday to Friday. Submit it in a photo collage through the following link on June 18:
Top 10 finishers among men and women divisions will each receive a medal, while all participants will receive an e-certificate. A virtual awarding ceremony is scheduled on Monday, June 21, 2021, at 4 PM.
