Washington State University Tri-Cities’ annual 5K run aimed at helping defray book expenses for students is April 18 at the north Richland campus.
The Fund the Future 5K Run is organized by the Associated Students of WSU Tri-Cities and proceeds go toward helping students pay for textbooks.
The run will begin at 9 a.m. on the Urban Greenbelt Trail along the Columbia River on the university campus. A 50-yard dash for kids will be offered immediately before the main event.
Preregisteration is $20 for the general public, $15 for WSU Tri-Cities alumni, $10 for university students and staff and for kids ages 6-12. Kids under 6 are free. Those registering the day of the run will pay an additional $5, except kids.
Budu Racing will offer timing chips and prizes will be awarded to the top finishers. A bounce house for kids will be available and brunch will be offered for participants at 11 a.m.
