Whilst the Committee have been discussing options for some virtual runs, in the meantime the Bendigo University Athletics Club facebook page has been getting rather busy with posts during COVID-19 induced isolation.
Alongside the Gazelles, club members have been taking on some fun weekly challenges focused not on how fast you are, but about having fun and staying local.
Weekly Challenges (so far) have included:
- Draw a Strava Shape
- How much elevation
can you cover in 7km?
- A Three Photo Challenge
- Street Name
There’s five points awarded for participating and then additional points awarded each week for creativity and good humour.
The challenges can be done anywhere throughout the week and must be posted to the Club’s Facebook group for judging.
What challenge will be next?

A slightly more formal, timed series of challenges is being considered by the Committee for later in the season. This will be dependent on the duration of isolation and social distancing guidelines.
