Registration opens for 3.1-mile run at Clemson University
CLEMSON — Registration is now open for a 3.1-mile foot race that goes through some of the Clemson University area’s most picturesque terrain and includes a T-shirt for all who sign up.
The CES Fit Run begins at 9 a.m. on Sept. 20. Registration is $20 until Sept. 13 and then goes up to $25.
Runners will line up at the Fike Recreation Center at 110 Heisman St. The course includes the Hartwell Lake dike and ends at the university’s rugby fields.
The fee also includes a Zumba warm-up before the race and snacks and drinks at the finish line, said Melinda Boggs, a senior industrial-engineering major from Roanoke, Virginia, who is helping organize the race.
The race is open to all, including those with no university affiliation. Students who participate will have a chance to win prizes for student organizations.
“This is a great opportunity for students and other runners to get active and have some fun together,” Boggs said. “We hope to make it an annual event.”
The race is sponsored by the College of Engineering and Science and the college’s Student Advisory Board.
Runners are challenged to “make the dean’s list” by finishing ahead of the college’s dean, Anand Gramopadhye.
Packet pickup will be in Riggs Hall, room 101, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Sept. 18 and 19.
