Sept. 19, 2017
LAS VEGAS (UNLVRebels.com) - The UNLV track & field program will host the inaugural Red Rebel 5K Color Run on the University's campus at 8:30 am on Sunday, October 15. The event kicks off UNLV's homecoming week, which will culminate with the Rebels' football game against Utah State on Saturday, October 21 (3:00 pm), and also helps celebrate the University's 60th anniversary.
During the 5K run/walk participants will be blasted with red powder to show pride in our University as part of the fun-filled day. Registration opens at 7:00 am and run until 8:10 am, with a group warm up and stretch to follow at 8:15 am. The 5K color run is slated to begin at 8:30 am, while the one-mile walk will start at 8:35 am.
Proceeds from the event will be shared between UNLV Athletics and the Goodie Two Shoes Foundation, which provides disadvantaged children and children in crisis with shoes and socks as well as other items deemed essential for good health and positive development.
Participants that register prior to September 30 can receive one event T-shirt, Color Run sunglasses, and one complimentary general admission ticket to the UNLV-Utah State football game. Registrants can sign up as an individual or as part of a team.
For those wanting to be invovled without running/walking, individuals may sponsor the event, a participant and/or a team.
