Following in the tradition of the Arts’ 20 Relay, a historical UBC event which pays homage to the founding of the UBC Point Grey campus, UBC Recreation Intramurals in partnership with RUNVAN® are creating the Great Trek Student Relay. This relay is open to UBC students only and is comprised of a team of four people each running approximately 2KM in a relay style race against various faculties, residences, and clubs across campus.
Come out with four friends or classmates and run for fun or run to win! Don’t miss the start of a new UBC tradition and a great event to remember while at UBC.
