Friends University 3rd Annual President's Run - April 5, 2014

Friends University’s historic clock tower building, beautiful campus and surrounding Delano neighborhood will once again welcome runners and walkers of all ages as part of the 3rd Annual Friends University President’s Run April 5.  For the third year in a row, Friends University's Freddy Falcon will be joined by many other area mascots to cheer participants on and mingle after the races. Races include a Falcon 5K Competitive Race (timing and race management by Clark Ensz) and the Mascot Mile Fun Run/Walk.  Come check out our great 5K course, which will be part of the Prairie Fire Spring Half Marathon in May! Following the races, there will be live music and vendor booths, and Chris Cakes will feed participants and wow the crowd with their flying pancakes. Race participants will receive a short-sleeve tech T-shirt and other goodies in addition to prizes for all age levels. Come out and discover why Friends University is known for its friendly, welcoming and supportive atmosphere.
