Run Details

In-Person Tower-to-Tower 5K Challenge Group Run

If you aren't a fan of running alone, come join us for a group run! This year the Tower-to-Tower 5K Challenge will be a self-tracked 5K group run through OSU's campus on October 23rd that takes place at 8am. The run will start below the Student Union tower and finish in front of the Edmon Low Library tower. There is no on-site tracking, this is an easy-pace group fun-run for charity.  We encourage everyone to wear a mask at the start of the race if there is congestion.

 The course map is linked below; the course will also be chalked before the start time on October 23rd. This is NOT a closed course so you will have to watch out for pedestrians and traffic.

Union United Virtual Tower-to-Tower 5K Challenge

If you're uncomfortable running in a group we invite you to participate in the virtual Tower-to-Tower challenge! You can follow the course we have for the in-person run, or pick your own, just try to start at the Student Union and finish at the Edmon Low Library. 

We are doing our run a bit differently than others. There is no specific distance for this run. If you are prepared to run/walk 1 mile, then set that as your goal, if you are an experienced runner then set a good challenging distance. The most important part is to enjoy yourself while supporting the United Way! 

Virtual participants will pick up their medals with their bibs. 

Union United Bib
*Bib for all participants of the Union United Run
**Bibs and medals will be available for pickup beginning September 22nd in 301 Student Union. You must be able to pick up your bib/packet/medal at the Student Union in Stillwater, Oklahoma. You may also designate a friend, family member or colleague to pick up your items if you are unable.
