The 2020 edition of the Sprinter Campus Fun Run (yes, you can also walk) will take place on homecoming Saturday, October 3 at 9:00AM sharp. The 1-mile course begins at the Sprinter statue just off the Cross Lot between the gymnasium and the Chapel of the Christ. Grab some friends, get some exercise, and enjoy a refreshing start to a full, fall day of fun.

Pre-registration is now open at this link! There is no cost to participate, but only those who pre-register by noon on Thursday, October 1 are eligible for one of the many great door prizes from campus entities and community businesses. If you don’t register by noon on Thursday, October 1, you can still participate in the event…just show up ready to run!

T-shirts are available for purchase to those who pre-register by 5PM on Monday, September 21st. This year’s shirt will be red featuring a design by 2020 graduate Aaron Schultz (draft copy featured below). Adult cost is $8. Those 18 and under pay just $6 (even if they wear adult sizes). Deadline for ordering shirts is Monday, September 21 at 5 PM. Payment should be by cash or check to MLC Alumni Association. You can drop it off in the alumni office or mail it in advance to the MLC Alumni Relations, 1995 Luther Ct, New Ulm, MN 56073. You can also pay for it on-site at registration where all shirts will be picked up. We will not be shipping shirts. Participants should plan to arrive between 8:15 and 8:45 to sign in at the Luther Student Center near the gym. Door prizes will be drawn during the event, so stop by after you are done to see if you won! Upon completion of the race, stick around for free bottled water and snacks. The MLC football and volleyball teams will be in action that day and a host of other events are scheduled for the weekend. See the MLC website for the full slate of activities.
