14th Annual 5K Charity Fun Run

UPDATE: This year the event will take place on the North Campus Diag, not in Nichols Arboretum, due to icy conditions.

What: On Saturday, March 29th, 2014 the University of Michigan Chapters of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and Society of Women Engineers are teaming up to host the 14th annual 5K Charity Fun Run/Walk. This charity event was first organized as a fundraiser for C.S. Mott Children's Hospital of the University of Michigan, and we continue that tradition today.

Who: The Fun Run generally attracts over 200 runners, and we expect this year to be bigger than ever! The race is open to both students from the University of Michigan and the general public.

Where: This year, the Fun Run will take place on the North Campus Diag. For directions, please see the "Directions" tab.

When: The run/walk will start at 10 AM, but please arrive by 9:00 AM for registration. The cost of the run/walk is $15 for registration on the day of the run ($10 for pre-registration). The registration price includes a t-shirt, snacks and refreshments, and entrance to the post race raffle.

This year features raffle prizes from .... Bar Louie, BD's Mongolian Barbecue, Bivouac, Buffalo Wild Wings, Carol Roeda Studio, Douglas J Aveda Institute, Kellogg's, MDen, Noodles, RelaxStation, RoadID, Running Fit, Ann Arbor Sports Memorabilia Shop, Starbucks, and Tio's.
