Members of the Springfield community, UIS students, faculty and staff are invited to take part in the annual UIS Homecoming 5K Walk/Run on Sat., Oct. 15, 2011.

The race will start at 9 a.m. outside of Kiwanis Stadium and take an out and back route along University Drive (the ring road), ending at The Recreation and Athletic Center (TRAC). UIS Police and volunteers will assist with traffic control.

Awards will be given to the top male and female finishers in the categories of youth (17 and under), UIS student, UIS employee and community member. Organizers hope you’ll sign up for the race and bring your biggest fans to cheer you on!

“We have tons of great spots (to watch),” said Trent Tangen, UIS Recreational Sports Assistant Director of Fitness and Wellness.

The cost to sign up is $20 for Rec Sports members and $25 for non-members before race day. Registration on the day of the race will cost $30.

Participants must pick up their race packets at TRAC on either Fri., Oct. 14 between 4 and 8 p.m. or on Sat., Oct. 15 between 6:30 and 8 a.m.

A post-race raffle featuring prizes from local sponsors will follow the event. For more information call the Rec Sports at 217/206-7103.
