Here are the details for those that have registered:

  • You will be sent a PDF downloadable race bib by March 27th at midnight.

  • You’ll have from March 28 to April 11 to complete your 5K

  • Self-report your time, and post about your experience on our social media platforms!

  • You can run this 5K ANYWHERE at ANY TIME within the window.

  • You can arrange to pick up your T-shirt on campus, or have us mail it to you (let us know your preference via email at howardks1@appstate.edu)

We will send you all links and hashtags to use to share your experience with us online as soon as we’ve got them set up. Costumes are still STRONGLY encouraged !

Can I still invite my friends and family to register and run with me, wherever I am? Absolutely. Registration will remain open until March 27, 2020 at 5PM.

ALL the proceeds from this event support our annual Appalachian Kindness In Donations and Service (AppKIDS) program, which supports K-12 children in Watauga County who need winter clothing, shoes, food, and hygiene resources. This program is now in its 40th year. Read more about it here: https://staffsenate.appstate.edu/service-projects/appkids-event
