How does this "virtual" run thing work?
During the week of November 15 - 21st, run or walk a 5 or 10K from any location you choose. Whether you hit the pavement in your local neighborhood, or find your stride on a treadmill at home - you get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself before submitting the results online.
Upon submitting their results, each participant will be rewarded with a completion prize (varies by location).
Can my family members participate?
Yes! We welcome and encourage participation from your immediate family (anyone who would qualify for SEL benefits, even if they are not enrolled on the plan), however race submission times and leaderboard rankings will only be counted for members that are 16+ and have active Portal accounts.
How do I register my family members?
As an employee, you can register yourself and any participating minors under the age of 18 on the same registration form. Family members who are over the age of 18 are required to register themselves, and should be enrolled as Wellbeing Center members with active profiles on selwellbeingcenter.com in order to participate.
