11th Annual JayWalk 5K/1 Mile Fun Run

The Creighton University 11th annual JayWalk 5K/1 Mile Fun Run will be held at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, during the Alumni Homecoming Weekend. The walk/run is Creighton Studentís Unionís (CSU) annual fundraising event for the Jesuit Academy.

The JayWalk began as a celebration of the 125th anniversary of Creighton University and to recognize the relationship the three Jesuit schools in Omaha share. The schools are Creighton University, Creighton Prep and the Jesuit Academy.

The JayWalk has raised and donated more than $70,000 to provide student scholarships, facilities, and a new gymnasium floor.

Pre-race registration for students is $15 and $25 for non-students. Onsite registration begins at 8:30 a.m. Sept. 21 at Deglman Circle and is $20 for students and $30 for non-students. The race begins at 9 a.m. at Deglman Circle and the route will take runners around Creightonís campus and the surrounding area with the finish line at the Skutt Student Center. Following the race there will be a pancake feed until noon in the Center.
