Green Gallop Glow Run/Walk
Date: Friday, October 6, 2017
Location: UND Wellness Center
The Green Gallop Homecoming Run is a great way to show your UND Pride and kick off Homecoming Weekend! The course begins at the Wellness Center, runs along the English Coulee, through campus, and past Ralph Engelstad Arena.
Last year we held our first ever Glow Run and it was a huge succes! We have decided to continue with that theme this year. The race will begin just after sunset at 8 p.m. Join 200+ of your closest UND friends and kickoff Homecoming Weekend the right way at the Wellness Center!
