5K replaces extra-credit Fun Run

There is no Fun Run scheduled for the 2015 fall semester. Instead, students will have the opportunity to partake in the Ultimate 5K Arena Challenge.

The Ultimate 5K Arena Challenge is part of the 50th anniversary celebration, slated for Oct. 24.

“The Health, Leisure and Sports Sciences department was asked to join the Ultimate 5K Arena Challenge for the fall Fun Run,” Fritz Huber said. Huber serves as chair of the HLSS department.

This year’s 5K run/walk event will be open to the public, with ORU students racing alongside others invited to participate.

The 5K course will begin at 8 a.m. in the Mabee Center parking lot. The run will finish in the arena where the participants will be greeted by spotlights and music. The event is open to the public, and there will be a live-feed of portions of the race on the jumbo Mabee Vision screen.

“Students will still receive extra credit for participating in the 5K run,” Huber said.

Registration is $10 per person and will open closer to the event.

According to Huber, there will be a spring semester Fun Run as usual.

More information regarding the Ultimate 5K Arena Challenge will be released online in the near future through
