THE SURREYMOVES+ RELAUNCH!

Following the success of the Colour Run 2021, it feels like there is no better time to be relaunching SurreyMoves+ for the 2021/22 year. We can’t wait to share our range of new challenges and rewards over the coming weeks and months. Keep an eye out for some old favourites which will be returning too!

Interested in finding out more? You can find us at the Freshers Fair all day on Friday 24th September!

A YEAR IN STATISTICS

As we start the 2021/22 academic year, it’s a good time to reflect on what our SurreyMoves+ users have achieved since we launched our new platform back in October 2020. We’ve seen more than 3,000 users join our active community and they’ve recorded some amazing statistics in the process…

OCTOBER PRIZE MONTH

To mark the start of semester one, we’ve got some amazing prizes to give away on the Moves+ app when you complete selected challenges. There are a whole range of activities so you can get involved even if you are getting active for the first time.

Here’s a snapshot of what our October Prize Month entails…

MOVES+ TRAILS OF THE MONTH

In this feature, we’ll be sharing new exercise trails in the local area every newsletter. In this edition, we’ve got two great routes for you to try out…

 

RIVERSIDE RESERVE WALK

 

  • Take a trip down to the River Wey and head north along the river footpath to venture and explore the riverside nature reserve in Guildford.
  • See the first photo for a convenient route around the reserve from AP Plaza on Campus.

 

 

 

THE MOUNT WALK

 

  • Venture and explore the Mount, offering great views across Guildford and easily accessible from Surrey Sports Park.
  • Follow the second photo below for a simple route from the main reception of Surrey Sports Park to up and around the Mount.

MOVES+ MOTIVATORS

The primary aim of our Moves+ Motivators is to encourage different groups on campus to engage in physical activity. Whether you are an undergraduate, postgraduate or staff member, you are more than welcome to join the SurreyMoves+ community!

Our Motivators will be able to share their own experiences of places they like to exercise or walking the local area. In turn, we hope this will motivate individuals to keep active and explore their surroundings fully.

We are always on the look-out for more Motivators. If you are interested, you can view the different role descriptions for students and staff HERE. Please contact us at surreymoves@surrey.ac.uk if you have any questions.
