Active Badger Day

Each spring, we inspire #activebadgers everywhere to get up, get outside, and get moving. Inspired by National Recreational Sports and Fitness Day, it’s a full day of (mostly) FREE opportunities to play hard, get fit, and live well.

Activities in the past have included healthy meals at campus dining halls, group fitness classes at various campus locations, log rolling, a snowshoe trek across Lake Mendota with Outdoor UW, Late Night Skate with Ian’s Pizza, and more.

How will you celebrate?

Mark your calendar

Due to reduced campus operations and workforce as well as growing public health concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, all Rec Well facilities are closed and all programs, services, and events are cancelled indefinitely.

Our top priority is always the health and safety of our community. Please visit for the most current information for campus.

Thank you to our partners

Shout out to our friends on campus and in the community for making Active Badger Day the best way to spend a Thursday.
