Archive for the ‘5K Challenge’ Category

The Intramural Bunny Hop 5k took place last Thursday despite the cold weather. In some cases the cold weather helped these runners to achieve their fastest times. Many fans, runners, and readers may think that the competitors hop 5k, but that is a common mistake, “The Bunny Hop” title is merely for seasonal effect. This 5k is a race in which you run.

Some competitors walked while many competitors ran and a few runners recieved there fastest 5k time… ever. One of those individuals who had their personal best included the winner, Justin Wellum, who ran 3.2 miles in 15:56. First off, he not only won, but his average mile time was faster than “my personal best” mile time. Spectators were even heard as saying, “watching Justin Wellum running is just as exciting as the Kentucky Derby!” The Womens Champion, Jasey Beckman, of Chi  Omega took home the championship shirt as well as a giant chocolate bunny. Jasey’s performance in the Annual Bunny Hop Run recieved national attention from The National Long Distance Running Hall of Fame. So, in closing, if you missed the WKU Intramural Annual Bunny Hop 5k, you missed a moment that will be remembered in history by only the lucky.

Fall break is over and as flag football is back underway it’s that time in the season for big wins. For teams to make the playoffs they will need to be in the top half of their 6 team bracket. With the end of regular season approaching teams need to remember that sportsmanship effects your playoffs possibilities. Teams must have an average of a 3.0 out 4.0 sportsmanship grade to advance. Our sportsmanship rule has held teams back from advancing on past the regular season is years past. With the end of flag football coming closer other intramural sports are  now available.

Some new sports that will begin soon include Doubles Racquetball, Team Handball, and the Turkey Trot. So, if you are looking to win an intramural championship shirt and your flag team didn’t make the cut, you still have many opportunities to earn yourself a championship shirt. The three upcoming sports require different skill sets, Doubles Racquetball– you may need a little hand eye coordination and must have the ability to dodge people swinging racquets.Team Handball– a team event that is similar water polo on land and requires either a lot of endurance or a deep depth chart. Turkey Trot– this event is a 5k challenge so if your not up for a “light” run you can always walk. Our intramural department hopes to seen our participation grow in each sport so please sign up online.
