Bucs Stay Active Race


What is the Bucs Stay Active Race?

The Bucs Stay Active Race is a race for everyone! Choose between 1 mile, 5k, or 10k to complete on Saturday, June 20. The virtual race begins at 9am from your preferred location. Simply begin your workout at 9am using the Strava app. 

Do I have to run?

No, feel free to walk, hike, or run! Go at your own pace. The goal should be to get outside and do what you can do!

Who can register?

Everyone! ETSU students, faculty, staff, and CPA members can register and are eligible for prizes. Anyone in the community may register and will receive a finisher's certificate. Community members are not eligible for prizes but we would love to see you participate!

How do I register?

ETSU student, faculty, staff and CPA members should use their ETSU credentials to login and register on the Campus Recreation Portal. The event is free for everyone. Non-ETSU participants should only register in the Strava app

Where do I log my miles? 

Download the Strava App to your cellphone.

Next, you will want to join the ETSU Campus Recreation Club here. If you are already part of the Club, you can join the event directly here.

Use the Strava app to track your miles. Your miles will automatically be applied to the club if you join the event here. Even if you are walking/hiking, set your Strava to the running mode so that your miles will count in the club. If you use any other setting besides "running" in the app or on your smart watch/GPS watch, the miles may not load in the club. If you use a GPS device, be sure to connect the device/app to Strava in order to record your miles. Please visit Strava's website to learn how to do this for your particular device.

How do I win?

Everyone will receive a digital finisher's certificate for completing the Bucs Stay Active Race. ETSU member prizes with be divided into two categories (this is why ETSU members should register in BOTH the Campus Rec Portal and Strava).

Student Category | Overall 1st, 2nd, & 3rd

Faculty/Staff/CPA Member Category | Overall 1st, 2nd, & 3rd

Non-ETSU members are only eligible for finisher's certificates. Non-ETSU members should email Savanna Moeller, Coordinator of Operations and Aquatics at  in order to provide an email address for the finisher's certificate.


Get outside, have fun, keep smiling, and work hard!
