April 19, 2013

Runners and walkers from across the campus and the surrounding community are invited to celebrate the 20th Cinco-Cinco 5K, set for 8:30 a.m. Saturday, May 4, on the historic CSU Oval.

The race is one of the oldest and most popular in the area. The race begins and ends on the Oval, with the course winding throughout the CSU campus.

Registration, which includes one of the event’s signature T-shirts, is $25, $22 for students and teams of three or more. CSU students living on campus and runners age 65-over can register for $19. All rates are $5 higher race day.
