Haunted Hustle Running Package

We’re excited to announce the WGU Alumni Haunted Hustle, a spooky virtual 5K for all Night Owls, brought to you by the WGU Alumni Relations team! The concept is simple—all you have to do is register, order one of three Haunted Hustle package options, or throw on a costume of your own, and then get your run on sometime during the weekend of October 22-24. Proceeds will benefit the Student Emergency Aid Fund, helping students who are in jeopardy of not completing their academic journeys. Plus, every package includes a commemorative Haunted Hustle medal, courtesy of WGU Alumni.

Ready to Hustle? Follow these easy steps:

  1. Register and purchase the Haunted Hustle package of your choice at the WGU online store.

  2. Download the Strava app so you can easily track and share your progress.

  3. Don your swag and your favorite costume and run five kilometers between October 22-24.

  4. Share your participation on social media using #WGUgrad and #WGUHauntedHustle.
