Today starts a series of posts detailing events that are part of Homecoming & Family Weekend 2011. We’re going to start with new events, today’s feature: the Alumni 5K!
One of the most popular requests we get for additions to Homecoming was a 5K race. Well you’ve asked, and we delivered! As part of Homecoming 2011 we’re happy to be hosting the Inaugural Alumni 5K Run/Walk. Check-in for the race will begin at 8 a.m. and the race itself will start at 9 a.m. Race registration is $25 for alumni and families, $15 for students, and includes a race t-shirt, snacks and drinks after the race, and a contribution to the 5K. All runners should report to the alumni tent north of Tullio Field (football field) for race check-in and will be then directed to the start line.
The race course is set to start inside the Mercyhurst campus, will wind around various parts of the campus, veer onto the neighboring streets, and finish back on campus. We’ll have markers and students posted around the race course to make sure everyone gets to where they need to go!
