The Event

The UNAM Cultural Festival Run (UCFR) is an initiative of the UNAM Athletics Club (UNAC) aimed at promoting fitness and healthy living by students and community at large. Healthy living and fitness are an integral part of any society and species’ self-preservation and continuity. As such, these are important attributes of any student’s life towards successful studying. 

The UCFR is therefore aimed at creating awareness and sensitizing students and the community at large about fitness and healthy living. Equally, the UCFR is also aimed at sensitising students about the UNAM Athletics Club and its activities. The cultural festival offers a platform to reach out to students and the community at large, while UCFR will equally enrich the offering and diversification of the Cultural Festival activities.
