Campus on the Run
is an annual 5k (3.1mile) fun-run race, co-sponsored by the CCE and University Recreation. Students, faculty, staff, community members, and family members, six years and older, are welcome to participate in this great event! Both runners and walkers are encouraged to participate, although current varsity cross-country or track athletes are not eligible for prizes. Male and female divisions include age groups 6-17, 18-20, 21-24, 25-34, 35-44, 45-54, and 55+. For the first year there will also be The Campus on the Run Obstacle Dash for anyone over 18 years of age. This new edition is based off the popular dirty and challenging obstacle runs and will feature wall scales, tire flips, and sandbag carries as a few of the obstacles.
We hope to see you at this great event!

2015 Sponsored Nonprofit
Each year, Campus on the Run sponsors a local non-profit organization through proceeds generated by participation. In 2015, Backyard Harvest was selected to be sponsored by the event. Backyard Harvest (BYH) believes that everyone in the community should have access to fresh, healthy, local produce. They work to outgrow hunger by connecting local growers with low-income children, families, and seniors to increase access to healthy food choices across the Palouse region. Through a variety of locally-based growing, gathering, and gleaning activities, BYH provides low-income individuals with fresh, healthy foods and nutrition education. Backyard Harvest also makes it possible to use SNAP (previously known as food stamps) assistance at our region’s farmer's markets. By cultivating sustainable food systems and reducing waste, BYH is able to increase access to healthy food for those living in our area.
In 2014, BYH distributed nearly 40,000 pounds of produce. In total, the organization has shared more than 200,000 pounds over the course of its existence. In addition to this quantitative measure, Backyard Harvest is proud to contribute meaningfully to creating the type of community where all residents have access to healthy, fresh, local food and are able to participate in the community farmers market economy.
