(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.
The 5K certified course starts at the UTSA Convocation Center on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2017 at 8 a.m.
"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.
Participants can pick up their packets on Thursday, February 23 and Friday, February 24 from 3-7 p.m. in front of the Welcome Center at the Bauerle Garage.
There will be a video finish for all racers, real-time results and appearances by Rowdy the Roadrunner and the Spirit of San Antonio marching band. There will be food, drinks and entertainment after the race.
The UTSA Alumni Association thanks the top sponsors of the 2017 Diploma Dash: SACU, H-E-B, North Park Subaru Dominion and Liberty Mutual.
