Homecoming Dukes' 5k Run/Walk

Course Map

**Friends of UREC - After a lot of consideration, we have decided to cancel the Homecoming 5K Run for this year. Between the excitement of ESPN Gameday, the earlier crowds anticipated, and the conflict with the race course and volunteers, we believe this is the best decision for all parties. We will be offering refunds to those who pre-registered. Hope to see you on campus Saturday and GO DUKES!**

8am on Saturday, October 24, 2015 at UREC

JMU alumni, students, faculty/staff, and community members, start Homecoming off with UREC's annual run/jog/walk through JMU's beautiful campus! Join UREC's very own "Jogging Jimmy" as you start Game Day off on the right foot!

All participants will receive a race shirt! Strollers and pets on leashes welcome (please note that pets may not be brought into UREC).
