NUS Running/Hiking Team


Let’s Get Moving!

The National University System (NUS) is excited to say, “Let’s get moving!” Equipped with the power of a new 2020 Strategic Framework, we are being challenged to step it up! Partnership and Community is a NUS priority and the wellness of our staff and students is vital to our success. Uniting our energy and human resources we can make an impact on both. So grab your coworkers, get your trainers on, and get in the action! You are invited to join the new NUS Running/Hiking team!

This is an all level, all-inclusive group. Train at your own pace, race or don’t – just have fun and get moving! Our aim is to build awareness about the importance of regular exercise, to support our community in achieving their personal fitness goals and to incite school spirit among our NUS family.

Invitees include all staff, faculty, students and alumni. Bring the family too to join in the fun!

Make sure to sport any NU gear in your closets now for the Kick –Off event. Team shirts will be distributed after you help vote on a team name!
