Hi5K - Move. Run. Race. First-Timer, Fast-Timer, and everyone in-between.
Welcome to the Hi5K - Thanksgiving Day Apple Cup 5K Run / Walk.
Just two days before the Dawg-Coug showdown at Husky Stadium, lets have a little friendly Apple Cup of our own. Alumni, current students, supporters, fans, people - Join us for our first annual Thanksgiving Day Apple Cup 5K run / Walk.
There will be an Apple Cup Winner on this day. The Huskies of U-Dub, or Cougars of WAZZU. So, how does it work?
It's point-based on 2 factors - Skill and Participation. School with highest points win.
Skill Factor Points:
30 pts for 1st male, and 30 pts for 1st female across the finish, then 29 pts for 2nd, 28 pts for 3rd, and so forth on down to 2 pts for 29th, and 1 pt for 30th. 930 pts are up for grabs here (465 for males and 465 for females)
Spirit (Participation) Factor Points:
After 30th place, all finishers will also contribute 1 point for their school. This could very well decide the Apple Cup winner - so show up!! There will be hundreds of spirit points up for grabs here.
This race is helping to support NorthwestHarvest.org.
