Love Your Libraries 5K Race, March 3

5KlogoThe UT Graduate Student Senate is proud to announce the 20th 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 3, 2012. 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 Fastest UT Runner (student, faculty, or staff) and Best Team (greatest number of pre-registered finishers) 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 25. Students and Knoxville Track Club members receive a discount if they pre-register.

Whether a serious competitor or jogger or just an enthusiastic bystander, we invite you to Circle Park on Saturday, March 3, to show your love for the UT Libraries.
