Lord willing, the 2021 ON-CAMPUS edition of the Sprinter Campus Fun Run (yes, you can also walk) will take place on homecoming Saturday, October 2 at 9:00 AM sharp. Grab some friends, get some exercise, and enjoy a refreshing start to a full, fall day of fun. For those unable to be with us on campus, we will again offer a WORLDWIDE option to run or walk your 1-mile anywhere across the globe.

There is no cost to participate, but only those who register at this link by noon on Thursday, September 30 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, September 30, you can still participate in the event…just show up ready to run or walk! Visit the event’s Facebook page for ongoing updates and details.

T-shirts will be available for purchase to those who pre-register by noon on Monday, September 20th.  The design (submitted by current student Ryan Kohl and pictured below) will be printed on a red, soft-style shirt.


Participants should plan to arrive between 8:15 and 8:45 to sign in at the Luther Student Center near the gym. A group picture will be taken and race instructions provided between 8:45-8:55. Door prizes will be drawn during the event, so stop by after you are done to see if you won! 

We’ll traverse the 1-mile all-paved course rain or shine so come prepared. The course is flat (no steps or hills), and family-friendly (strollers & wagons welcome). The map below shows the exact route and we’ll run it rain or shine. If you haven’t seen the beautiful campus in a while, this is the opportune time to check it out! 

Upon completion of the race, plan to stick around for free bottled water and snacks.

From 9:30-Noon…
