Friends of Harvard Track Virtual Heps 5K!


Heps XC would have been this week! While you can’t cheer on Harvard in person this fall, you can still support Harvard Cross Country and the Track & Field program by participating in our virtual 5k throughout the month of November. Run your race on any course, on any day and time that suits your schedule and submit your results via Strava. This is a great opportunity to challenge yourself, your old teammates, or see how you stack up against fellow alumni!

Please join the Friends of Harvard Track for a virtual 5k!
