A WCU campus run with a twist and a message

Western Carolina University, as part of its Love Your Body Week, will hold a station run on campus at 4:30 p.m. on Nov. 13.

The Amazing Catamount Challenge will consist of teams of up to four participants who will be given clues to take them to locations around campus and complete activities based on various principles and concepts of loving your body. Some stations will include physical activities while others will examine positive and negative portrayals of beauty in advertising and building a healthy plate of food.

The event will end by 6 p.m. and is sponsored by the Intercultural Affairs, Campus Recreation and Wellness, Aramark, Counseling and Psychological Services, and Leadership and Student Involvement. Prizes will be awarded to the top two teams.

Check-in will begin at 3:45 p.m. In-person registration will be available on campus from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the week of Nov. 5-9 or participants can contact Sarah Carter at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by Nov. 11.
