About the 5K
The Gold Rush 5K fun run/walk is returning in 2021 as a hybrid event in partnership with Student Well-being and Joe's Peers.
The family friendly event is open to participants of all ages and fitness levels – whether you're walking your first 5K or you're a seasoned runner.
All funds raised will support the university's Health and Wellness Fund.
Following the walk/run, we will host a Health and Wellness Fair, a community event providing resources, and practical, every day tools that attendees can use to better understand and manage their mental and physical well-being.
This year's run will take place at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, 2021, at the Havener Center. Race registration will open in August 2021, and participants unable to attend the race can still support mental well-being by running virtually.
Interested in having a booth at the fair? Reserve your spot today!
Each booth includes one 8-foot table and two chairs. Reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis while space is available.
