The Pac-12 Best of the West Fitness Challenge encourages students, faculty and alumni to get involved. Each participant logs their fitness minutes to contribute to their overall Pac-12 campus participation points. Various activities are listed – ranging from running, walking, swimming and more. Prizes will be awarded to the most active participants from each school, and the ultimate grand prize of $5000 will be awarded to the school with the most active participants.
