Virtual Recreation Programming

Welcome to Ball State Recreation Services' Virtual Programming! Online programming at no cost!

Join Ball State Recreation Services in its first-ever Virtual 5K!

What is a virtual race?
Participants (BSU Affiliated Runners 18 and up) can run, jog, or walk on any road, trail, track, or treadmill. Each runner runs their own race at their own pace. You get to decide when and where.

How does it work?
Track and time your route with any watch, smartphone, app, or pedometer. When you've reached 5k or 3.1 miles, you're done! Time to celebrate!

How to submit your results?
Once you have completed your 5k you will submit your results here! You will be asked to provide proof of completion which can be done with a photo of your watch, screenshot of your tracking app, etc.

What is the deadline to submit your results?
Recreation Services will be hosting a monthly 5k race in September, October, and November. Submit your month's best time by midnight the last day of the month to compete for that month. Multiple entries are permitted. Did you miss the deadline? That's ok! Just complete your 5k for the next month.

How do you win?
You are all winners in our book! Throughout the event we'll be sharing updates on those who have completed their race. At the end of the month we'll celebrate all of our finishers and highlight some of our top competitors.

Share your photos of your race! We'd love to cheer you on from a distance.
We miss you and would love to send a virtual high five as you cross the finish line. Tag us at @BallStateRecreation include the hashtag #BallStateVirtual5K  

Submit Your Results

Build your team and join us in our first-ever Recreation Step Challenge!

What is a step challenge?
Participants (BSU Affiliates 18 and up) can run, jog, or walk on any road, trail, track, or treadmill while tracking individual steps.

How does it work?

  1. Build your team of 3 and have the captain register your team.
  2. Each participant will complete an individual waiver prior to participating.
  3. Captain submits weekly submissions while everyone tracks their individual steps with any watch, smartphone, app, or pedometer. 

How to submit your results?
Once you have completed your steps for that week send a screenshot of your total steps that week to your team captain. Each team captain will submit their teams’ results and proof of completion here! 

What is the deadline to submit your results?
Submit your results the Monday following the week your team stepped. Multiple entries are permitted.

How do you win?
Throughout the event we'll be sharing updates on those who have submitted their steps. The team with the most steps per week and overall winners will receive Recreation promotional items. Prizes will be available once campus reopens. Campus pick up only.

We'd love to cheer you on from a distance.
We miss you and would love to send a virtual high five as you complete your steps. Tag us at @BallStateRecreation and include the hashtag #BallStateVirtualStepChallenge
