4th Annual LRU 5K

The University City Commission is proud to present the fourth Annual Lenoir-Rhyne University 5K on Saturday, April 6, 2019. This exciting event is intended for community members of all ages and celebrates the relationship between LRU and the City of Hickory.

Register to Participate

In an effort to strengthen and broaden the bond between LRU and its hometown, the University partnered with the City of Hickory to form the University City Commission (UCC) in 2013. The UCC seeks to grow LRU’s student body presence and interaction in Hickory, while also promoting school pride throughout the community.

This event features post-race refreshments, musical entertainment, prizes, and more. Participants are welcome to run or walk the course at their own pace. The 5K route will take place on LRU's campus in Hickory, beginning and ended on 7th Ave. NE, and leading participants through the streets adjacent to the University.

All businesses are welcome to participate in the 5K as a vendor and reserve a booth by emailing Allie Bentley.
