Night Owl Trot Virtual 5K

Night Owl Trot Virtual 5K

We’re excited to announce the first-ever Night Owl Trot, a virtual 5K for all Night Owls brought to you by WGU alumni! The concept is simple—all you have to do is register and order one of three Night Owl Trot package options and get your run on sometime during Thanksgiving weekend. 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 Night Owl Trot medal, courtesy of WGU Alumni.

Ready to trot? Follow these easy steps:

  1. Register and purchase the Night Owl Trot 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 run five kilometers between November 27 and 29.
  4. Share your participation on social media using #WGUGrad and #NightOwlTrot.
