Reminders for the Blue and Gold Foam 5K Run/Walk

Transportation is available to and from the Mitchell Park Domes. Shuttles will depart starting at 10 a.m. and will run continuously until 11:00 a.m. and will return to campus immediately following the 5K. Pickup/drop-off location is on 16th street (next to McCormick Hall) between Wisconsin Avenue and Wells Street. Due to limited parking availability at the Domes, you are strongly encouraged to use the shuttles.

Students are not permitted to pick up anyone else’s run packet but their own. Don’t forget – this is a blue and gold foam run/walk! Please be sure to wear clothing you don’t mind getting blue and gold foam on, as the foam may mark light-colored clothing.
