Registration open for 2nd annual Rainbow Run

Registration is now open for Herd Glow 5K, Marshall’s 2nd annual Rainbow Run at 9 p.m. on June 21 in Huntington.

The event features a nighttime 5K through Marshall’s Huntington campus, and it begins and ends at the Memorial Fountain.

Registration prior to June 7 is $25 and guarantees a T-shirt.  Registration after the early deadline is $30 and a T-shirt cannot be guaranteed.

Proceeds fund a scholarship, which benefits undergraduate students who have demonstrated contributions to diversity, equality or inclusion initiatives.  The scholarship will be endowed when $15,000 is raised.  To learn more about the Marshall University Diversity, Equality and Inclusion Scholarship, visit

To help prepare for the event, a free Couch to 5K program is also underway.
