Every Thursday from 10 a.m. to noon or 2 to 4 p.m. (depending on schedules), participants will meet at the Recreation Center to start that day’s 15 to 30-minute events. Professional University Recreation personal trainers will be there to work with decathletes on proper form and to give instructions on how to complete that day’s events.

Male and female first-place winners of each event will be assigned a score of 10 points, with the second-place winners 8 points, third-place 6 and so on until fifth place.
