The UT Graduate Student Senate is proud to announce the 21st annual Love Your Libraries 5K Race to benefit the University of Tennessee, Knoxville Libraries. We hope you will join other UT library supporters for this event.
The 5K race will take place Saturday, March 2, 2013. Registration is from 7:45 to 8:45 a.m. in Circle Park on the UT campus. The run begins promptly at 9 a.m.
The Graduate Student Senate hosted its first race to benefit the UT Libraries on Valentine’s Day in 1992. Proceeds from the race assist the libraries in purchasing much-needed electronic resources, books, equipment, and other items critical for student success at the University of Tennessee.
The Knoxville Track Club will manage the finish line and compile race results. An awards ceremony will follow the race. Awards will be given to the Top Three runners overall, 1st Masters (40+) and 1st Grand Masters (50+), male and female — as well as in several age-group categories. The Best Team (organization with most registrants — must pre-register), Fastest Team, and Fastest UT Runner (UT student, faculty, or staff) also will be recognized. Race t-shirts are guaranteed for pre-registered runners, and shirts will be distributed as supplies last on race day.
Pre-registrations must be postmarked by February 22. Download the Registration Form here. Please be sure to make your check payable to the “Graduate Student Senate.”
Whether a serious competitor or jogger or just an enthusiastic bystander, we invite you to Circle Park on Saturday, March 2, to show your love for the UT Libraries.
