Registration & Start/End meets in front of the TWU Fitness & Recreation Center

Who can enter?

TWU Employees are welcome to enter TWU's first ever SECC 5K Fun Run/Walk! Family and friends are welcome to attend and cheer you on! This is an fun, healthy, and easy way to show your support while contributing to the State employee Charitable Campaign. Everyone is encouraged to join us! Participants may run or walk individually or with a team. Recommended donation is $20 per individual participant and each individual in a team, but any donation amount is appropriate and all are welcome to participate. All proceeds go directly to the SECC campaign!

What can I/our team win?

Besides bragging rites, awards will given to both individuals and teams for the following categories:

  • Best individual times: (Female & Male) (Over & Under 30 yrs. of age);
  • Best average team time;
  • And to make this community building event even more fun, we will have a "Best Costume" category. So get your Halloween costumes together early and show them off!

One finalist from each category will be awarded first place and will win an award and community-donated prize. Those placing in second and third place in each category will receive ribbons representing their respective placement. An appointed panel will evaluate entries. Costume will be judged based on appearance and creativity. Prizes will be awarded to one member/team only, not each individual in a team.

    2. communicating information provided by the event coordinators to their team members; and

    3. collecting and submitting all team members' entry donations.
