The Oxford College Family Weekend 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run will take place Saturday, October 26, 2019. Join the Center for Healthful Living on the Oxford College of Emory University campus in the promotion of a healthy lifestyle.
The 5K race winds through the streets of Oxford, Georgia and culminates on the quadrangle of Oxford College, the birthplace of Emory University. Whether you are a competitive runner or a beginner we invite you to join us!
The 1 Mile Run is about having FUN! Bring the family and enjoy the morning. The run is stroller friendly. You may also bring your pet, but remember a leash.
After the race, join us for pictures with the Oxford College Mascot, Swoop. Drinks and snacks will be provided. T-Shirts to all registered participants.
Medals will be awarded to the top 3 overall finishers of the 5K race for men's and women's divisions.
The race will begin in front of the Oxford College dining hall at the intersection of Pierce St. and Wesley St. Parking is available behind Haygood Hall, or in the Center for Healthful Living parking lot at 308 Moore Street. Signs will be placed on Emory Street (Hwy. 81) to direct participants onto campus.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will directly benefit The Chaplain's Emergency Fund. This discretionary fund is used by the Oxford College of Emory University Chaplain to help students, faculty and staff at Oxford College that are in crisis.
