Course Description:
This enjoyable course will begin and end near Bosco Plaza, following a scenic loop around the Kansas
State University campus. It will diverge from the road onto a gravel trail just before reaching Kimball
Avenue and return to Bosco Plaza via Mid‐Campus Drive. [Please see the Course Map for more detail.]

Water and Medical Assistance:
There will be one water stop along the course at the 2 mile mark. There will be medical personnel on call
and two policemen present at the race. Restrooms are available in Seaton Hall, at the start and finish of
the race.

Race Day Events:
Following the race, there will be a Social Justice Fair in Bosco Plaza featuring various student groups.
Please feel free to visit these tables and learn more about the causes that these groups support. Free
refreshments, including Panera bagels will be provided. There will also be prize drawings for individual and team participants.

Buy a bag! Instead of offering T‐shirts, the FAAST Fun Run 5K will offer fair trade canvas bags to race
participants. These fair trade products provide a livelihood for the women who make them and their
families; proceeds from the bags will be sent back to the women. If you pre-ordered a bag, or would like
to a purchase a bag, the bags will be available at Registration or after the race on Sunday.  To see a picture of the bags, click here.

In Case of Weather:
The race will be held rain or shine. However, if there is lightning in the area, the race start may be
delayed or, depending on the intensity, be cancelled. This determination will be made by the FAAST
planning committee and Kansas State University. Indoor accommodations and shelter will be available
in Seaton Hall should they be needed. Please note that registration fees are non‐refundable and nontransferable.
