Presenting "The Golden 5k"

Technically the cheetah may be the fastest mammal on earth, but here at Homecoming Headquarters we believe all of you gophers out there have some serious speed! On Saturday, October 15th, join Homecoming and Habitat for Humanity for the Golden 5k run/walk, one of our first Homecoming week events. All proceeds will benefit Habitat for Humanity and participants will receive a race t-shirt, race packet, and post-race food. So get your running shoes ready and come enjoy the great fall weather with a course that circles the East and West Banks of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus! You can register as an individual or grab some friends and participate as a team. Awards will be presented to the top finishers, winners of the team competition, and random finishers at the post-race awards ceremony. Prizes include gift cards to Mesa Pizza, Raising Cane's, Noodles, Qcumbers, and Target. Participants can register online, in person, or through the mail.
