(Dec. 21, 2010)--Get ready for the holidays -- start training for the 27th annual UTSA Alumni Diploma Dash 5K San Antonio City Championship Race and Fitness Walk. Race day is Feb. 26 at the UTSA Main Campus, and a host of community sponsors, alumni and UTSA volunteers promise a morning of exercise, great amenities and prizes.
Race-day registration and stretching will begin at 7 a.m. at the Convocation Center and the starting gun will fire at 8 a.m. The racecourse is new this year and will offer a certified, 5K flat and fast course for runners and fitness walkers. The race is chip-timed. Families are welcome.
Medals and prizes will be awarded in Overall, Course Record, Masters, Student and 14 age categories. Special divisions include Clydesdale (male, 190 pounds and up) and Filly (female, 140 pounds and up) and a Wheelchair division with first-, second- and third-place medals given to men and women. Participants can make it a group event by registering as a team; all teams can compete for medals and plaques. Each registrant will receive a long-sleeved event t-shirt and goodie bag.
Registration fees are $25 per person through midnight, Wednesday, Feb. 10, and $35 on race day. UTSA Alumni Association members who register by Feb. 10 pay $20.
UTSA students can register for $10 and form a team with any number of runners. Children age 14 and under are encouraged to sign up for only $10 -- there's a special DipDash Kids Program sponsored by H-E-B just for them, and each registrant gets a goodie bag, t-shirt and certificate. Packet pick-up will be Feb. 23-24 at Run Wild Sports at the Pearl Brewery.
This popular event is sponsored by the UTSA Alumni Association. Proceeds benefit the UTSA Alumni Scholarship Fund and alumni programs and services.
