Eagles Announce 2nd Annual 5K
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 before March 15th. 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).
More information about sponsorship and event partners will be available at a later date.
