About the event

Join fellow Wildcats and friends for the 2023 K-State Homecoming Philanthropy 5K. The K-State Alumni Association will host both an in-person and virtual 5K.
As K-Staters continue a great tradition of giving back to our community, proceeds for this year's virtual 5K run/walk will benefit the Friendship Meals Program at Manhattan Senior Center.

T-shirt is guaranteed if registered by Oct. 4, 12 p.m. noon.
No refunds will be given for any 5K registration or shipping fees paid.
Thank you to our 5K sponsor, WTC Fiber Internet.

The in-person 5K will begin at 9 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 22 at the K-State Alumni Center. Prizes are awarded for first through third in four categories: non-student male, non-student female, male student, and female student. All students participating in the group competition must be in-person. Non-student and students (not in a group) can pick up your packet Friday, Oct. 20 from 2-5 p.m. or on Sunday from 8-8:30 a.m. before the race. 

The virtual 5K is open to non-students and students (excluding groups) and must be registered by 9 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 22. You can register through this site or call the K-State Alumni Association at 785-532-6260. Enjoy a 3.1-mile walk, jog or run at a place, pace, and time of your choosing between Sunday, Oct. 15 through noon on Sunday, Oct. 22 and share your result. We will compile virtual results separate from the results of the in-person race. There are no prizes for the virtual run/walk. Don't forget to enter your race time here by noon on Oct. 22.

Packet pick-up will take place on Friday, Oct. 20 from 3-5 p.m. or Sunday, Oct 22, 8-8:30 a.m. at the K-State Alumni Center. All virtual registrations will be mailed the week of October 4.
