Let’s race!

As part of the virtual MSU Homecoming plans, the MSU Alumni Office is partnering with the 2020 Grand Marshal, Sparty, for a virtual race. All proceeds from the race will go directly to support the Sparty Mascot Endowment Fund


Participating is simple.  

Run solo or grab your family or friends and join from wherever you are during Homecoming week (Sept. 21-26). Whether you walk, run or roll, you can complete this virtual race at your own pace, place and time! The first 500 racers who sign up will receive a commemorative medal! (Medals will be shipped around mid-October). 

Remember to snap a picture in your favorite MSU gear as you race and share it with Spartans worldwide by tagging @MSUAlumni and @TheRealSparty in your Facebook and Instagram stories!
