The universities of the Pac-12 conference are competing all week to see which is the most active — and you can help USC make its mark in the competition.

The conference’s Fall Recreation Challenge allows students, staff, faculty and friends to track their activity Oct. 26-30 on the special Pac-12 Challenge website. The competition winner will be named at the end of the week.

At USC, competition participants get free access and classes at the Lyon Center and the Health Sciences Campus gym, and folks who sign up for the challenge will be eligible to win a variety of workout-related gifts. Several special Health & Wellness Week events are also planned.

This fall’s competition allows credit for all forms of recreation and exercise, including skateboarding to class, commuting by bike, doing household chores and everyday walking.

USC placed third in the Pac-12’s spring 2015 Fitness Challenge, which was won by Stanford University. Previous winners were Stanford in 2014, UCLA in 2013 and Arizona State University in 2012.
