Registration open for K-State’s Homecoming 5K Run/Walk

Posted September 19, 2018

The K-State Alumni Association invites Kansas State University students, alumni, friends and community members to kick off K-State's 2018 Homecoming week by participating in the annual Homecoming Philanthropy 5K Run/Walk on Oct. 7.

This year's Homecoming theme is Little Apple, Big Entertainment and marks K-State's 103rd Homecoming celebration. Homecoming is a universitywide celebration sponsored by the K-State Alumni Association.

Registration for the 5K, which benefits the Multicultural Student Center initiative, is open and can be completed online or via mail. The annual 5K has raised more than $68,000 for community organizations since it began in 2003. For registrations submitted online or postmarked by Sept. 26, the cost for K-State students or Alumni Association members is $17 and $20 for nonmember or nonstudents. For all registrations submitted or postmarked after Sept. 26, the cost is $25. Registration is available online.

"Each year the Homecoming Committee supports a cause or initiative through the proceeds of the 5K," said Marcus Kidd, All-University Homecoming chair and assistant director of student programs. "The committee felt the Multicultural Student Center initiative was a priority for K-State students and the university."

The 5K course begins and ends at the K-State Alumni Center, located at the corner of 17th Street and Anderson Avenue, and travels through the K-State campus. The race will take place rain or shine. Parking will not be allowed in the Alumni Center lots. Please park in the West Stadium lots. Additional details on the 5K Run/Walk and the full schedule of Homecoming events are available here.
