(Feb. 3, 2017) -- – It's a UTSA tradition. Runners and walkers will hit the pavement for a good cause during the 33rd annual UTSA Alumni Association Diploma Dash City Championship 5K.

"Diploma Dash is one of our key events to raise scholarship money for prospective and current UTSA undergraduate and graduate students," said Jana Kennelly, associate vice president for Alumni Relations and executive director of UTSA Alumni Association. "It's also a great way for the community to explore the UTSA campus and see how much we are growing as a top-tier university."
The Diploma Dash is open to both runners and walkers. Families are encouraged to participate and can even bring their pets.
Registration is $15 for current UTSA students, $40 for adults, $25 for UTSA Alumni Association members and $15 for children under 18. Medals will be awarded for the top three finishers in each age category.
