Get Yourself to the THON 5K Sunday

Sign up, 'cause Gumby says you should!

This Sunday is the 10th Annual THON 5K. It will begin at 11:30 a.m. at the Bryce Jordan Center, the home of THON.

Registration costs $15 for a “fun run,” aka the no pressure walk/run. But if you’re interested in the competitive race, registration is $18, where you’ll be given a “professional timing chip.”

You can register online or at the race. On Sunday, the registration tent will open at 10 a.m. for runners to pick up a number and for last minute registrations. If you want your fee to be credited to your organization’s THON total, make sure you preregister TODAY.

If you are pondering why you should register and be there, this should convince you:
-FTK, duh! The Kids’ Race is at 11 a.m., and it is too cute for words
-DJ Larry Moore
-Food, donated by local restaurants

Last year more than 5,000 people registered, and this year the THON committee is hoping to beat that total. So come out Sunday for what will most definitely be a great kickoff to the upcoming THON year!
