Deadline to register for Prediction Walk/Run
is June 6
The 19th Annual Prediction Walk/Run will be on Tuesday, June
13, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Note the date change--the event
usually takes place in May.) Any faculty or staff member from
UCSC may participate in this fun fitness activity. You'll receive
a free T-shirt and get the chance to win some not-so-fabulous
prizes. Space is limited to the first 65 teams registered. The
deadline to register is June 6.
A Prediction Walk/Run is a relay. Each person on a team of
four predicts his/her time to run or walk a distance of one-half
mile at a comfortable pace. The captain of the team predicts
how long, in minutes and seconds, the team will need to complete
two miles (four half-mile laps). During the relay, one person
from the team will hand a baton to the next person. Participants
do not have to run or walk fast to win the event--the closest
actual time to the predicted time wins! Bring your own creative
baton and leave your watches at work!
If you would like to help pay for equipment and travel expenses
for women's athletics, send a check (payable to UCSC FOUNDATION)
with your application--$5 / person would be greatly appreciated.
