September 29, 2009

The Run-A-MUC 5K/3.1 mile race and the 2-mile fun run/walk will be held on Saturday, October 3 on the Mount Union College campus.  A special Kids’ Race is also open to all children age seven and younger. 

The 5K/3.1 mile race and the 2-mile fun run/walk will take place on a mostly flat terrain through residential areas surrounding the campus.  It will be police supervised with splits at each mile and a water station.

The Kids’ Race begins immediately following the 5K and includes one lap around Mount Union’s track.

Fruit and drinks will be available at the finish line.  A ceremony will be held in the stadium following the race during which prizes will be awarded to the first three overall male and female winners of the 5K race and to the first two finishers in each age group, not including overall winners.  Prizes have been donated by Jimmy John’s and the Mount Union Office of Alumni and College Activities.  Each participant in the Kids’ Race will also receive a prize.

The cost for both the 5K race and the 2-mile fun run/walk is $15 in advance, which is due by September 27 or $20 on the day of the event.  The Mount Union student cost is $5.  Pre-registration guarantees an all-you-can-eat lunch and a t-shirt.  Runners can obtain their packets or register at the McPherson Academic and Athletic Complex (MAAC).
