Register Early For Eastern 5K

The 2014 course winds through Eastern University and the surrounding neighborhood.

ST. DAVIDS, Pa.—This year, the Eastern 5K will be held on Saturday, April 12, starting at 8:30 a.m. The course, just like last year starts near Eastern’s main entrance, goes through campus and winds through the neighborhood before returning to Eastern’s main entrance for the finish line.

Last year’s race had more than 140 male and female participants. Jair Saenz had the top men’s time (17:28) and Meredith Unger had the best women’s time (18:22).

Coach Wilson invites students and Eastern friends and family to sign up early for the race. There is an early registration discount for signing up by March 14. When registering early, students only have to pay $12 and non-students $20. Teams and families can register as a group for $80 total.

Monetary prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female finishers ($100 for first, $50 for second, $25 for third).

The event will also be helping raise money for Victoria Graham, an Eastern sophomore women's lacrosse and soccer player who is facing a major brain surgery in April. The costs of this procedure are substantial and we would like to support her and her family in this time. 

For a donation of $5 or more you will receive a wristband showing your support of Victoria. Any donation of $100 or more will grant you and one other person free registration for the race.
