Posts Tagged ‘Bunny Hop’

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.
