Time to register for Fun Run/Walk

The University community is invited to join our new president, Dr. Mike Mahon, and his family for the Get to Know U 5K Fun Run/Walk, Saturday, Sept. 25.

The event is one of a number of introductory activities that Mahon will be taking part in this fall as he begins his tenure as the new University of Lethbridge president.

The 5K course winds its way through campus, giving runners and walkers a view of many of the University's new facilities.

Registration for the event is limited to the first 200 participants and is priced at $15, which includes a water bottle, opportunity to win door prizes and post-race refreshments. All money raised from the run will help support KidSport Alberta, a charity long supported by Mahon and his family.

The run begins at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 25 with pre-event package pick-up on Friday, Sept. 24 from 4 to 8 p.m. and the morning of the race, from 8 to 9:30 a.m., at the U of L ticket centre.
