Warm-up for the conference!
Saturday, July 24th, 2021
10-11 am New York | 3-4 pm London | 10-11 pm Beijing
Can’t make the time? No worries, you can participate anytime within 24 hours after the race.
Can’t run? Feel free to walk, bike, or even row (like AVP Finance Will Glass-Husain). Or even just join in to cheer others on!
Runners from all over the world will join together to run/walk, race, row, and cheer each other on every step of the way. Imagine a live race announcer welcoming you to the event, a live leaderboard updating our stats in real-time, and racing at the same time as others from all over the world!
Our suggested donation is $30 but you can contribute more, less, or run for free. We invite everyone to participate!
Join us in this fun social event while providing needed support to grow the next generation of System Dynamicists.
The Society is pleased to underwrite the cost of the Virtual 5k hosted by Charge Running. 50% of the proceeds from contributions up to $2000 and thereafter 100% of the proceeds will accrue to the Student Chapter to support their activities including the annual Student-Organized Colloquium at our conference. The Student Chapter brings together students, early career system dynamicists, and people new to the field into Society. We are an international group of students facilitating System Dynamics learning, career-building, and networking opportunities for the global community to join and benefit from System Dynamics. We promote the development of the field and the interchange of knowledge and research in all related fields including social sciences, supply chain management, agriculture, paleontology. We also organize a yearly Colloquium to promote the communication between the students and the practitioners of the field and to boost student interest.
Your generous donations will contribute to several initiatives, including:
- Creating learning opportunities for students through scholarships
- Develop the Student-Organized Colloquium and additional introductory classes
- Boost the awareness of System Dynamics in universities where it is not formally taught
- Fund Student Chapter events
