For those unfamiliar with the AUCF, it is an organization started by two-time Olympian, Julius Achon in 2007, with a focus on providing improved healthcare, education and exposure to sport in Uganda communities.The Bowerman event has supported the AUCF every year since its inaugural run in 2010, and the amount raised has grown every year.
The race course this year will feature a slightly different route than the year prior to accommodate construction on the campus, but the course is still said to be fast and flat. In addition to a competitive race, the Bowerman 5k offers fun post-race festivities where participants and their families can enjoy food, music and a chance at raffle prizes. The post-race festival will also provide an opportunity to meet some of the Bowerman Track Club’s Elite and Professional athletes.
The official race start will take place at approximately 7pm. Registration is open to all ages and abilities with an entry fee of $30, which includes a Nike Dri-fit tee. So grab your friends and family, and register for what sounds like a fun filled event!
