Walk Across Campus Closing Ceremony & Post-Race Celebration

The Ever to Excel 5K is a walk/run event open to all benefits-eligible employees at Boston College. Participants can register on RaceWire as individuals. There is no team portion of this event. After the race, all participants are invited to a post-race celebration in collaboration with the Walk Across Campus closing ceremony. Awards are presented for top finishers (top 3 overall, as well as top 3 male and top 3 females finishers excluding the top 3 overall). A limited number of shirts are provided for participants based on a first come, first serve basis.

This course is flat and fast circling two laps around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir totaling 5 kilometers or 3.1 miles. There will be one to two hydration tables with water and Gatorade set up around the course.

There is no entry fee to participate in the race. Healthy You sponsors the event for all benefits-eligible faculty and staff. Space permitting, race participants can sign up until one hour prior to the race.

Race Day
Runners must arrive promptly by or before 12:15 PM to line up for the race. Runners agree to start based on estimated time of race completion with the fastest estimated finishing times starting first. All walkers must start after the runners.

Timing
RaceWire will provide official timing for all interested participants. Timing starts when the participant crosses the start mat. While the runners will cross over the finishers mat twice, because the course is two laps around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir, only the second tap/loop will be recorded as the finishers time.
