If it's spring, then the SZTE Alma Mater challenge is here again, where we count on your individual results to find out which faculty or unit will be the most athletic and active in spring 2023!

Based on the experience of previous challenges, the SZTE Alma Mater 2023 Spring Challenge focuses on the basics: collect the kilometres by running, cycling, walking and get your community to the top of the podium!

The details of the challenge were determined based on a professional recommendation from the SZTE Sports Centre:

Duration of the challenge:

Duration of the challenge: 10 April - 4 June 2023

The purpose of the challenge:

To increase the motivation for regular physical activity and to promote a healthy lifestyle by involving as many university students as possible.


All former and current SZTE students, aka the SZTE alumni community, SZTE staff and current students.

What type of exercise can be used to collect kilometres?

  • walking/hiking
  • running
  • cycling
  • other: swimming, self-propelled water sports equipment

The chosen activities can be performed both outdoors and in a gym (treadmill, indoor bike, rowing bench). We ask all participants to participate fairly, meaning logging activity-related kilometres. In cases of doubt, the SZTE Alma Mater administrators may ask for additional proof of the kilometres in question, which will not be counted if refused.

We kindly ask everyone to carry out the sport activity in a responsible manner, to choose the distances and forms of exercise according to their own health and fitness, and to seek professional help and advice in case of uncertainty. SZTE Alma Mater cannot be held responsible for any injuries sustained during the challenge.

  1. Start the app, stop at the end of the activity, and save it. It's important that the kilometres you've done count, so choose a feature that makes this clear!


  1. Upload your screenshots for that week to the "SZTE Let's Do This!" group on in a post and write next to them how many km you have done that week in total by category (walking, running, cycling, "other") and to which community ("Faculty" or " Unit") you want to donate it!

Upload: every weekend, Saturday 6:00am - Monday 12:00pm, until June 5! Please upload your results continuously, week by week!

You can collect kilometres in a week with several different training sessions.

Rewards on top of keeping you healthy:

A guaranteed prize draw of 23 gifts for participants who regularly logged their data for at least 6 weeks, as long as they completed at least 23 kilometres during the challenge.

Special prizes will be awarded:

- The three male and female participants who cycle the most kilometres.

- The three male and female participants who run the most kilometres.

- The three male and female participants who walk the most kilometres.

- The Faculty and Unit with the most kilometres.

- The most active Faculty, i.e. the one with the most people collecting the most kilometres.

Once again, we have a common goal! This year, the goal of the SZTE Alma Mater community is to "visit" the universities of the EUGLOH association. For the virtual tour we need to collect together about 13.000 km.

The results will be announced and drawn at the Alma Mater Weekend and Sports Day on 10 June 2023 at the SZTE Sports Centre between 10:00-12:00, while the ceremonial awarding of the common goal will take place on 20 September 2023 at the IDUS (International University Sports Day).

Both events are expected to be attended by participants with on-site challenges and activities!

Let's step up and collect the kilometres together for SZTE!
