KU Vets Day 5k

Registration is now open for the annual KU Vets Day 5K! The 5K honors past and present veterans and raises awareness of the roles veterans play in our university and community. This year, we will commemorate the 75th anniversary of the GI BillĀ®.

The 5K begins and ends at Memorial Stadium, traveling past the war memorials on campus. All participants will receive a T-shirt and finisher’s medal. A virtual run/walk option is available for those who can’t make it to campus.

The KU Vets Day 5K is hosted by the KU Student Veterans of America and the KU Veterans Alumni Network. All proceeds support the SVA chapter, the VAN and the Lt. Gen. William K. Jones Military-Affiliated Student Center.

Register now.
