About This Activity

The Carnival comes to Tarleton! Come celebrate TSU’s Centennial Homecoming Year at a festive carnival! Enjoy a dunking booth, cotton candy, popcorn, live music, festive purple carnival games and much more!

The Homecoming 5k was started in 2008 by Daron Trussell in order to add more tradition to the weekend. It was an opportunity to get more alumni and community involved in Tarleton's annual celebration. The first 5k (3.1 mile) race was held in 2008 and had just over 100 participants with numbers steadily increasing each year. The big draws for the race are the themed T-shirt, the low entry fee ($25) and the chip timing service for official race times.

This year, due to campus construction along our normal route, we will be holding the race at the Stephenville City Park.
