About This Activity

Get your flashlights, glow sticks, and headlamps ready for the 6th Annual Western Carolina PEAKS 5K night race!  All runners and walkers are welcome to join in on the fun. 

Half of the proceeds from the race will go towards the Student Affairs Student Emergency Fund while the other half will go towards a non-profit organization of the majority vote at the finish line.

Event details and schedule

The race will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the heart of the University at the Central Plaza/Fountain and will conclude in the same area.  Packet pickup will begin at 5:45 and will close at 6:45. 

T-shirts will be guaranteed to pre-registered runners who register by 09/22/2015.


Rain and or Severe Weather: The WCU PEAKS 5K Night Race committee is highly concerned with the safety of the race participants and spectators. As such, in the event of severe weather (thunder, lightning, high winds, heavy rain, low visibility, etc.) the race will be canceled. Cancelations will be determined by the race committee with final say coming from the event manager and the WCU Police Department Chief Ernie Hudson or designee.

In the event of a cancellation, no refunds will be given because of the fund raising nature of this event. In the event of cancelation, participants will be emailed a survey the week after the race so that the traditional voting can take place for selection of which charity will receive the proceeds from race registration.
