Relay For Life And Blue & White Society To Host ‘Race To Relay’ 5K

Relay for Life of Penn State is joining forces with the Blue & White Society and the Association of Residence Hall Students to host a 5k benefiting the American Cancer Society. The race, appropriately named “Race to Relay” 5K, will take place this Sunday, March 20.

The race will kick off from the corner of Pollock and Burrowes Street, where runners should meet on Sunday morning. Check-in starts at 9:30 a.m. at the IST Bridge. The race will wind participants through the Penn State Golf Courses, beginning shortly after at 11. Runners can find the course map, as well as more information about the 5K, on the registration website.

All proceeds from the 5K benefit Relay for Life of Penn State. Runners, joggers, walkers, and even crawlers can sign up here. Registration is $20.

Relay for Life of Penn State 2016 will take place April 9-10 this year on the soon-to-be-open HUB lawn where participants will walk for 24 hours to honor those who are fighting cancer or have lost their lives to the disease.
