CANCELED: 5th Annual LRU 5K

Due to nationwide efforts to limit the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), this event has been canceled.

The University City Commission is proud to present the fifth Annual Lenoir-Rhyne University 5K on Saturday, April 4, 2020. This exciting event is intended for community members of all ages and celebrates the relationship between LRU and the City of Hickory. Joining this year’s partnership is Run Time Races.

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.
