Registration for the 2018 run is now open! Sponsorships and volunteer opportunities are also available.

The 1-Mile Walk heads out along Garland Avenue and back through the J.N. Andrews Boulevard past the iconic AU Globe. You will turn right to pass Chan Shun Hall and the Howard Performing Arts Center before heading back toward the finish line. This event is a great choice for the whole family!

The 5K route highlights the beautiful center campus of Andrews University. You will take Garland Avenue over to the J.N. Andrews Boulevard, striding past the AU Globe. You will then turn into center campus where you will run by the J.N. Andrews sculpture and Flag Mall, and pass underneath Buller Arch. You will then speed around East Campus Circle Drive before taking the paved apartment trail and International Court on your way back toward the finish line at the Alumni House. This 5k route should be flat and fantastic!

We’ve revised our 10K route for a new 10.2K route that now has a different approach up into the trail system. Same great trails, but we’ve taken out that first steep, rough climb to the trails and replaced it with a more gradual approach that is a tiny bit longer but much easier to run up!  You’ll still get to enjoy the challenging but scenic excursion through our beautiful, hilly, winding trails of Andrews University ending with a climb up Dairy Hill back to campus, PLUS all the features of the 5K route.  If you enjoy trails and running, you won’t want to miss this beautiful course!
