Yellow Brick Road 5K Run/Walk

By Blake Wood

Get ready for a good work out during the inaugural Yellow Brick Road 5K Run/Walk, part of UIS Homecoming on Saturday, October 3, 2009 starting at 9:00 a.m. The race is being coordinated by the Recreational Sports Office.

"The route of the race will take you throughout campus and around campus. The road outside of TRAC is one we'll be starting on and heading west for our initial start and it's a really scenic route,” said Amanda Jillson, Assistant Director, Fitness & Instructional Programs.

It only costs $10 to sign up for the race before the September 16, 2009 early registration deadline. Signing up early will also guarantee participants a race t-shirt. Students, staff and community members are welcome to sign-up for the race at the Recreational Sports Office on the UIS campus. Runners can also sign up on the day of the race for $15.

Follow the “Yellow Brick Road” and come out to celebrate UIS Homecoming.

For more information call the Recreational Sports Office at 206-6658.
