Chase Charlie Races: 5K Run/Walk, Kiddie 100 & Virtual 5K/10K Pre-Registration is OPEN

September 19, 2023

Each fall, the Undergraduate Sport Administration 402 – Event Management in Sport class organizes the Chase Charlie Races. The 23rd Annual Chase Charlie Races are part of the Homecoming events on Saturday, October 21st.  The Chase Charlie Races consist of an in-person 5K run/walk, a Kiddie 100 (children running across the football field during halftime of the Oct. 21st Homecoming football game), and/or a 5K/10K Virtual run/walk.

The purpose of our event is three-fold:

1.     To create a unique and quality event for all participants.

2.     To provide undergraduate students with a valuable immersive learning opportunity that benefits the Sport Administration Fund for Excellence, which provide scholarship and professional development opportunities for high achieving sport administration students.

3.     To educate and prepare the Muncie community for a lifetime of healthy living.
