Running Shoes

Do you want to sign up for the Bio-K+ Bum Run but aren’t sure if you can run an entire 5K? Maybe you’re coping with an old injury that you’re afraid will rear its ugly head once you strap on your running shoes? Here are some tips that might make you feel more confident about joining us. First, contrary to the name of this event, you really don’t have to run at all! Participants are welcome to walk the 5K to raise awareness about colorectal cancer. But if you want to run, and just aren’t sure if you can make it, here are our low-pressure, time-sensitive, and completely non-professional tips. Give yourself 10 minutes, 2-3 times a week. Just run around the block and if you feel tired, take it to a walk break. Run 10 minutes and, if you feel good, increase your run by 5 minutes each week. If you can make it to 30 minutes by the end of August – we’re confident that you will be ready to walk/run at the Bio-K+ Bum Run. Walk, Run, Skip or Jog it out. All speeds are welcome on August 26, 2012!

Tips on how to build a team for the Bio-K+ Bum Run

Team Bum Run

Rounding up a team for the Bio-K+ Bum Run is motivation for bringing people together. It’s a great excuse to get your whole family out for a run. It can be a fun way to have old friends reunite for a good cause. Or it can be an opportunity to get your co-workers together for some out-of-office down time. Once you’ve assembled your group, be sure to pick a great team name. With a run named after your bum, we’ve given you a lot of good material to work with! Now you’re ready to go to and set your team’s fundraising goal. We look forward to hearing all of your creative team names, maybe seeing a few fun running outfits, and to watching everyone work together for a great cause on August 26, 2012!
