The 17th annual Alum Run 5k, a popular event for area runners and walkers, will once again take place during homecoming weekend, starting at 8 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, in Huntington.
Runners and walkers are invited and anyone (including non-alumni) may participate.
The Alum Run 5k will take participants from Marshall’s campus into downtown Huntington and back to the campus to finish the 3.1-mile course. The course, which was used last year and in past runs, is nearly 100 percent flat and straight.
The pre-race registration price is $20, which is good through Oct. 5. The cost is $25 if registration is submitted on the day of the race. Cash or check (payable to MU Campus Rec Club) is accepted. Credit Cards are also accepted through the online registration portal on www.tristateracer.com.
Race packet pick-up will be from 1 to 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5, in the lobby of the Recreation Center. Late packet pick-up and race-day registration will be from 6:30 to 7:45 a.m. in front of Cam Henderson Center.
Participants will be treated to a post-race celebration and an awards ceremony, starting at about 9:15 a.m. at the Recreation Center. Refreshments and beverages will be available, and participants may use the center’s shower and locker facilities.
