Online Intramurals: Virtual 5K
Just because we're staying apart doesn't mean we can't come together virtually for some Intramurals fun! First, sign up on imleagues.com. Then lace up your running shoes and head outside (keeping a safe distance from your neighbors) or to your treadmill, enjoy a walk or run, and record your time and distance on an app (such as Mapmyrun). Take as long as you wish, but after you have logged 5 kilometers, take a screenshot and post it, along with pics of yourself taken before, during, or after your walk/run, and tag us (@uofm_im_sports or @uofmcampusrec) or use the hashtag #memphisintramurals. Championship shirts will be given to the following individuals: Most 5ks, Fastest Overall, Fastest person every week, and Most Days in a Row. Let's get moving, Tigers!!!

Recreation Center Temporarily Closed
Because the health and safety of our students, members, and employees are of the utmost importance to us, the Student Recreation and Fitness Center is closed in response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation.
The closure is in compliance with other preventive measures being followed by The University of Memphis, following guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to fight the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).
