Third Annual Get to Know U Fun Run/Walk

Everybody may now know who President Mike Mahon is, but the Get to Know U Fun Run/Walk isn't just about meeting the new man on campus. Instead, it's an opportunity for everyone to gather in a recreational setting, all the while raising funds to support KidSport Alberta.

The first incarnation of the fun run/walk was truly an opportunity to introduce the new president to the University community but it has grown into so much more over the ensuing two years. Scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 22, 11 a.m. at the 1st Choice Savings Centre, the fun run/walk is an opportunity to mix and mingle with the University community, explore campus and bring as many people to the University as possible.

This year, a new 3km course has been added to the original 5km course. It is also stroller friendly, opening the event up to the entire family.

Registration fees for the event are $15 per person with children six and under registering for free. School group rates are also available.

Complete run/walk information is available online at

Come out, have fun, and get to know your "U".

Includes: Post-run refreshments, souvenir and a chance to win great prizes!

Proceeds will help support KidSport Alberta.
