The 2024 Homecoming Sprinter Fun Run (or walk!) will occur on Saturday, October 5, at 9:00 a.m. Grab some friends, get some exercise, and enjoy a refreshing start to a full fall day of fun. If you cannot be on campus, we will offer a virtual option to run or walk your one-mile anywhere globally.

Participation is free, but you must pre-register to be eligible for one of the many great door prizes from campus entities and community businesses. Pre-registration for this event will open in the fall. T-shirts will be available to those who pre-register by noon on Thursday, September 14

Event day registration is from 8:15 to 8:50 a.m. at the Luther Student Center. A group picture will be taken, and race instructions will be provided ten minutes before the race begins. Door prizes will be drawn during the event, so stop by after you are done to see if you’ve won!

The 1-mile on-campus route is flat and family-friendly (strollers & wagons welcome). The map below shows the exact route.

Stick around after the race for the Family Fun Zone!

From 10:00-12:3o

Alumni and parents of fall athletes are encouraged to register in the Luther Student Center (near the gym) starting at 10:00 a.m. This registration is different from the Fun Run registration. Come to campus, snag some free swag, and support your Knights. All are welcome to take part in the FREE Family Fun Zone.


The afternoon features Knights’ football (1:00 p.m.), women’s soccer (2:00 p.m.), and men’s soccer (4:30 p.m.).

And More

A host of other events are scheduled for the weekend. See the MLC website for the full slate of activities.
