Registration open for Wellness 5K

Join the St. Thomas community in celebrating Homecoming Week at the Wellness Center’s 8th annual 5K run/walk relay down Summit Avenue. The race begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 10.

New this year, teams of four will relay on Summit Avenue, starting in front of the arches, continuing to Fairview Avenue and then back before handing off a baton to their next teammate. Teams can run or walk. It isn’t necessarily about speed, but rather about celebrating Homecoming and staying healthy. Each team member will run or walk approximately .8 miles.

The 5K is open to UST students, staff, faculty and alumni. Family and friends of the UST community are also welcome. The team showing the most St. Thomas spirit will win the prize!

Check-in will begin at 8:15 a.m. in the Koch Commons Fireside Room. The race is free for students, including those who register at the event. Cost is $5 for faculty and staff who register before Saturday, Oct. 10, and $7 the day of the race. The fee is $10 for alumni and $15 for family and friends.
