WGU Alumni Mustache Dash 5K
April 16-18, 2021

We’re excited to announce the WGU Alumni Mustache Dash, 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 Mustache Dash package options and get your run on sometime during the weekend of April 16-18, 2021. 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 Mustache Dash medal, courtesy of WGU Alumni.

Ready to Dash? Follow these easy steps:

  1. Register and purchase the Mustache Dash package of your choice at the WGU online store (package details coming soon!).

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

  3. Don your swag and run five kilometers between April 16 and 18.

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