The annual Homecoming 5K is back! Get ready to help kick off the 2016 University of Illinois Homecoming Week! With orange and blue all around, this is a great event to raise excitement, adrenaline, and spirit for the best university out there. The price of registration includes an Illini dri-fit race shirt for all participants. In order to guarantee that you get a race shirt, we ask that you register before October 15th. In honor of the University of Illinois Illini Union’s 75th Anniversary this year, proceeds also support renovating, modernizing, upgrading, and in some cases, repairs for the iconic building. Since opening the doors in 1941, the Illini Union serves as the living room of the campus community and continues to be the gathering place for students, faculty, staff, and the Champaign-Urbana community. It is the hub for students to meet new and old friends, conduct meetings, study, relax, eat, and have a great time at any of the exciting events that happen year-round.
