What’s new this year? The 5K will support the Spartan Open Pantry.  Participants may make a donation to the pantry in lieu of paying a $20-25 registration fee. Details regarding registration and food donations are listed on the event page, http://recwell.uncg.edu/fitness/events/5k/. (There is a shopping list for most needed food items.)

Also new this year, the race will start and finish at the Plaza and UNCG’s award-winning Pedestrian Underpass. Parking on campus is free the day of the event and race participants are encouraged to park in the Oakland Deck. The race will begin at 9 a.m., and will be followed by a 10:30 a.m. awards ceremony and pancake brunch at the Leonard J. Kaplan Center for Wellness.
