Gold Rush 5k
Missouri S&T and Miner Athletics have teamed up to host the virtual Gold Rush 5K to raise funds for the Miner Resilience Fund.
Packets are mailing out later this month to the 175 registered participants from 21 states with details on how to earn prizes and download the official digital race bib.

How to Get Started

Once you receive your packet, you’re all set to start. 

Complete your 5K (walk, run or bike) in your neighborhood, on a treadmill or however you like — and track your finishing time.

Share your running pictures with the hashtag #GoldRush5k so we can all celebrate with you!

Participant Prizes

Need some incentive? Here are some fun ways you can earn post-event prizes. All participants will receive a T-shirt, digital race bib and sticker. Individuals and groups are welcomed, and prizes will be awarded in several categories.

Share a Photo

Snap a photo and submit online after you complete the race, along with your name, location and time. We'll be looking for the best selfie, most creative photo taken, earliest (and latest) start, creative event course maps, themed costumes, coordinated pet costumes and more.

Share a Song

Share a song on your playlist that gets you really pumped up. We’ll add it to the Gold Rush 5K S&T Spotify playlist.
