NWU staff and students get active

The School for Biokinetics, Recreation and Sports Science, in cooperation with the Faculty of Health Sciences, hosted their first NWU-PUK run which took place on Friday, 15 April. The track was 2.5 km long, but those who felt very energetic, ran the track twice for a distance of 5 km. 

According to Prof Hans de Ridder, Director of the School for Biokinetics, Recreation and Sport Science, the run was a huge success and received much participation from students and staff. Therefore, the run will now take place every second week. Staff and students from the School are on standby to take blood pressures and monitor heart rates.

Reserve the following dates in your diary for the NWU-PUK Run which will take place on 13 May, 27 May and 10 June.  The dates for the second semester will follow shortly.  Hope to see you there.
