Quad Fox 5K

Take part in our award-winning race, the Quad Fox Virtual 5K! Join us wherever you are to experience the deep feeling of inclusion of the University of Rochester community both near and far.

A virtual race is one that you run or walk on your own, at any time of day, in any place you like! It’s a great way to stay connected with one another when you can't get together for a normal 5K.
