Don’t miss the Run for the Roses 5k and 1k Walk!  Runners will start and finish in the beautiful K-State Gardens, take a lap on the track inside the historic World War I football field, and cruise by Anderson Hall, the Student Union, and Ahearn Fieldhouse.  It’s a surprisingly flat, fast course!  (Not USATF Certified in 2024 only due to construction.)  First, second, and third place winners will get a beautiful glazed purple pot with rose-shaped succulent plant!  Sorry, no dogs on the course.  Virtual runners can use any 5K course to run between 4/24 and 4/30--time yourself and submit results by following the "click here" link near the QR code in your registration confirmation e-mail Follow us on Facebook at
