Chase Kilometers!

Chase kilometers!

On the 2nd of April 2018 EMÜ will launch the walking and cycling competition “Chase Kilometers!”

The aim of the competition is to draw attention to suitable and convenient non-car methods of moving on the campus and in the city of Tartu. In addition, we will identify who is the most dedicated mover / moving department in our university. For this we will monitor daily distances walked and cycled and will keep monthly standings of individual and departmental rankings in Endomondo.

With the campaign we also wish to draw attention to our awesome cyclists, to the fact that there are so many of us and that cycling is an excellent way to move around the town. 

We invite our students and employees to enrol in the competition. Enrolling in the competition will take place here, on the green initiative’s homepage (see here). 

If you have any questions or problems when registering or using Endomondo, feel free to contact Elis ( or Elen ( for assistance.
