Walkers are welcome and prizes for age group winners will be presented after the run. Proceeds support Campus Recreation initiatives including student training and development.
Local runners are encouraged to pick-up their packets early on October 20 from 12:00 – 7:00 p.m. at the Recreation Center to avoid waiting in line the day of the run.
