Radford University Athletics and the Radford University Athletic Foundation will be hosting the Second Annual Highlander Half Marathon and 5K on Saturday, April 28, 2018. All race proceeds will be used to support the Student-Athlete Scholarship Fund which provides scholarship aid to our sixteen varsity sports.
The Half Marathon will begin at 8:00am at the Radford University Dedmon Center. The race course will take runners on a tour of Radford that includes Main Street, our beautiful campus, and the surrounding neighborhoods. As runners head back to town, they will continue on their tour through Wildwood park and end at Bisset park. The race course, start/finish line and all festivities will be staffed by our student athletes, athletics staff, and university and community volunteers. All runners will enjoy a spectacular finish line celebration with the Rolling on the River food truck rodeo. Come join us for a day of fun! Wear your Highlander gear and show your support for our Radford University Highlanders. Kilts are strongly encouraged!
The 5K will begin at the Dedmon Center at 9:30am. Runners will jump on the Bisset Park trail right by the dog park and follow it the whole way down the river. This race provides a scenic and family friendly race for everyone to enjoy. The 5K will also end at the Rolling on the River food truck rodeo in Bisset Park.
