The St. Thomas community is invited to help celebrate Homecoming Week by participating in the Wellness Center’s 10th annual Wellness 5K Run/Walk down Summit Avenue. The race begins at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15.

Individuals can run or walk. It isn’t necessarily about speed, but rather about celebrating homecoming and staying healthy. The event is approximately 3.1 miles.

The 5K is open to St. Thomas students, faculty, staff and alumni. Preregister by Friday, Oct. 7, and receive a Wellness 5K T-shirt. The student with the best Tommie spirit will receive a prize.

Check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m. on Oct. 15 in the Murray-Herrick Campus Center Fireside Room. The race is free to students, including those who register at the event. Cost is $5 for faculty, staff and alumni who pre-register before Oct. 7, and $7 after the deadline and on the day of the race.

Register here. For more information, contact the Wellness Center, (651) 962-6128.
