Normally, the Annual Spirit of the Tribes 5K is hosted by Native American Student Programs office of the University of California Riverside and honors the Native American spirit and culture with a Saturday morning full of fun and exercise for students, family, and friends. We would invite everyone to come out and enjoy this fundraising event for UC Riverside student scholarships.
However, as we move into the eighth month of closures and quarantine due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) we are all experiencing anything but “normal” at these times. Nevertheless, we adapt and overcome. With the changes in routines and everyday life, it is vital now more than ever for self-care and safely getting out for some fresh air and physical activity.
This year, we’ve adapted the “15th Annual Spirit of the Tribes 5K” to this virtual terrain and invite you to join us from your neck of the woods! There are some changes from our previously held Spirit of the Tribes 5K so please read carefully to be fully informed.
Firstly, this year Spirit of the Tribes Virtual 5K will be FREE to register! DONATIONS will gladly be accepted. Please visit the following link to Donate and select the Native American Student Programs Scholarship Fund. Select the amount you wish to donate and Add to Basket.
Next, as we recognize the importance of physical activity and being flexible during these times, we’ve expanded this one-day event for the week of November 22 –28, 2020. During this time, you may participate and submit your activity via a provided survey link with a screenshot of a Fitness Tracker App (Strava, Samsung Health, etc...) of the activity logged for the day.
In order to successfully participate and receive your Spirit of the Tribes Swag Bag, you must use a Fitness Tracker App to complete a minimum distance of 5 kilometers (3.1 miles). Only submissions with screenshots of the Fitness Tracker App that displays your distance and time will be accepted. This is to keep it consistent, fair, and transparent for all participants. See Example below for reference.
