FEBRUARY 7, 2024 — The UTSA Alumni Association will host the 40th annual Diploma Dash City Championship 5K, beginning at 8 a.m. on Saturday, February 24. Held on the UTSA Main Campus, this epic race blends campus nostalgia, personal fitness and unbeatable Roadrunner spirit.
The race is open to all individuals in the San Antonio area. Participants will complete in several categories to receive custom medals and prizes. Challenges include masters, top dog and awards for the fastest teams, students and UTSA departments.
Additionally, participants are invited to a post-race celebration with food, drinks and giveaways.
Diploma Dash began in 1985 and is now one of San Antonio’s largest chip-timed racing events.
“There’s nothing quite like Diploma Dash, especially for our current students and Roadrunner Alumni,” said Jacob Cavazos ’06, president of the UTSA Alumni Association. “It’s such a unique course that lets you take a behind-the-scenes look at this amazing campus.”
The UTSA Alumni Association will award $150,000 in scholarships this year to students who need financial support to move their education across the finish line and prepare for their careers. Participation helps fund scholarships, student programs and initiatives that make a difference in the lives of students and alumni.
“It’s so amazing to see that something as simple as a run around our campus can support the success of our Roadrunners,” Cavazos said. “Diploma Dash is not only vital to the success of our Alumni Association but many of our scholars are greatly impacted by the generosity that this event creates.”
