The Izzo Legacy Run/Walk/Roll

TBD Directions
"I hope that the lessons that we learn are to appreciate what we have, respect the decisions that are made in the best interest of everybody... And try your hardest to take advantage of every day you're on the Earth." -- Tom Izzo
2021 Izzo Legacy Event

The Izzo Legacy event organizers are currently planning the 2021 Izzo Legacy Run/Walk/Roll. The goal is to host a safe in-person event within the guidelines of the ongoing public health concerns brought on by the coronavirus pandemic.


The Izzo family has partnered with Playmakers to host this premium experience on the campus of Michigan State University. The mission is to connect Alumni, the MSU and Mid-Michigan communities in a positive celebration of Coach Izzo's legacy. The events include a 5K Run/Walk, 5K Roll, 1 Mile Walk, Children's Races and a Virtual 5K; all events will focus on fitness, fun, family, Spartan spirit and charitable giving!

Proceeds from the 2021 Izzo Legacy Run/Walk/Roll will create an endowment for the Izzo Legacy Family Fund that will ensure charitable giving for years to come. In addition, participants can donate to select local charities through the registration process or on the donate page. Fans who donate $1,000 to one or more of the selected local charities will be acknowledged on the Donor Banner displayed at the Izzo Legacy Event.

Tom and I have certainly been blessed to be a part of this community and we feel a genuine obligation to give back to the MSU and Mid-Michigan communities that have become such a large part of our lives. One of the reasons we’ve never left Michigan State is the connection to our community.
~ Lupe Izzo

Tom and Lupe Izzo created the Izzo Legacy Fund to formalize their commitment to the community they have called home and raised their family.

Each event will take participants on a celebration tour of MSU Athletics on campus! The 5k and Mile Walk will start at the Breslin Center near the Hall of History, pass by Jenison Field House, Old College Field, Sparty, Ralph Young Track and Field, and finish outside of Spartan Stadium. Upon completion, participants will be able to walk around the football field at Spartan Stadium! This is not so much a race, but a tour of everything athletic on the banks of the Red Cedar!
