Race Date: TBD East Lansing, MI 48824 US Directions
Race Day Details

Be prepared for this to be a big event – we’re hoping to have over 500 participants this year – and the more the merrier! Spectators encouraged to cheer our participants on!

Race Day Registration - On-site registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. Race day registration is $35. T-shirts not guaranteed (but we should have plenty!) 

Packet pick-up - You are welcome to pick up your packet at Playmakers in Okemos (just 1.5 miles east of campus) on Friday, March 13th from 5-8 p.m. to streamline the process. We encourage local participants to take advantage of this opportunity, with the anticipation of Saturday morning being very busy. Packet pick-up is also available beginning at 9:00 a.m race day morning.

Post Race Snacks - We will also provide post-race snacks and water for all participants, including bananas, apples, and Kind bars! Yum!!

Course - The race will be starting at the MSU Auditorium, which is located across the street from Bessey Hall. The course will travel throughout campus and even pass by Beaumont Tower! This family-friendly atmosphere is going to be exciting for people of all ages, and we welcome family/friends wishing to spectate. The more people cheering and dancing with Sparty the better!

Awards - We will be holding an award ceremony in 108 Bessey (across from Auditorium) around 11:30 am. or as early as possible, once all participants have finished the race and results have been tabulated. Medals will be given to the top two participants in each age group for each gender (0-14, 15-19, 20-24, etc.) and overall male and female winners. We will also be announcing the raffle prize winners at this time. 

Parking - We have designated two parking lots which are the closest proximity to the MSU Auditorium (start of the race) and have used orange arrows to point them out on the campus map seen below. Ramp 2 is located behind Bessey Hall and Lot 9 is located next to Giltner Hall; both of which are less than a 5 minute walk from the Auditorium.
