Tarleton State University Recreational Sports will host a 5K run Saturday. Registration is $20 per person and includes a long-sleeve T-shirt for early registrants.

Competitors can still register for the event through Saturday with walk-up registration beginning at 6:45 a.m. A pre-race meeting will begin at 7:45 a.m., and the race will begin at 8 a.m.

Age divisions are broken into elementary, junior high, high school and Tarleton students, and 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59 and 60 and over.

"This is our third year of hosting the Homecoming 5K race," said Rec. Sports Assistant Director Daron Trussell. "We had 105 runners the first year and it has grown ever since."

The race will follow an on-campus course.

"We have all 3.1 miles of the race on Tarleton's campus which should be a lot of fun  with homecoming in full swing," Trussell said.

Recreational Sports hosts other 5K events throughout the year and hopes to continue adding more to the calendar.

"Our next 5k is the Turkey Trot with Delta Zeta Sorority on Nov. 13, and we will host more races in the spring," Trussell said.
