To celebrate the University of Hull’s partnership with Team GB, we’re offering alumni the opportunity to get involved in the athletic heroics this summer by participating in the Hull Alumni Olympic Challenge.

Do the length of the Humber – 40 miles in 4 weeks. Go at your own pace, do it in whatever way you choose, and do it in your own neighbourhood or backyard.

And help us to raise funds for our University of Hull Talented Athlete Programme to support students like Andrew Morgan-Harrison, the fastest 200m sprinter in Europe.

Get fit, have fun, make a difference

After a year of being locked-down, many of us could use some encouragement to get off our couches and get our fitness levels up. That’s why we’ve set three different levels of challenge – a-half-a-Humber (20 miles), a Humber (40 miles), or a-Humber-and-a-half (60 miles). We’ll also be organising online events with University of Hull fitness and sports science staff offering expert advice and tips for your fitness, nutrition and wellbeing journeys.

A global community of supportive participants

All participants will be invited to be part of a global community of participants – there will be social media groups where you can connect with fellow alumni, share your challenge stories and progress, and you will have exclusive access to our series of challenge related online events.

Everyone’s a winner

The aim of the Hull Alumni Olympic Challenge is to support our community of alumni, staff, students and friends to get involved in physical activity over the summer and take the path to a healthier and happier lifestyle. But that isn’t all you will win. By participating you will:

  • Receive an exclusive Team GB University of Hull medal
  • Have access to our state of the art gym facilities (for those of you close enough to get on campus)
  • Be invited to join a group on an online running app where you can track your progress
  • Be invited to join a Facebook group for all participants to connect, encourage one another and share your progress and stories
  • Be invited to our exclusive online challenge events
  • Have the satisfaction of knowing that your registration fee is supporting our Talented Athlete Programme at the University of Hull

We’ll be taking the challenge – will you?
