The UW Oshkosh Cross Country Teams will host the 7th Annual Titan 5k on Saturday, August 3rd at Menominee Park in Oshkosh. The teams will again be raising money to support those who live with Parkinson's Disease, which is a cause near and dear to us, as our former coach lives with Parkinson's Disease. Last year's funds were able to help start an exercise class at the Oshkosh YMCA. In the past six years, we have also raised money and awareness to support those who are affected by human trafficking, those who live with Down Syndrome, and people who are affected by the Civil War in South Sudan. Our student athletes look forward to continuing to help make a difference in the world around them.
This year's event will again offer music, a fun atmosphere, door prizes for all competitors, and awards. The top 3 in each age group win awards, and we will also give awards to the Top Male and Female overall, the Top Male and Female Alum overall, the Top 40+ Male and Female finisher, and the Top 40+ Male and Female Alum overall. Pre-registrants are guaranteed a tshirt, as well, and we will have a delicious collection of baked goods to enjoy post race.
We will again have a Kiddy Quarter, which is a 400m race for children ages 10 and under. The race is free, and all children will receive a prize, but no tshirt is included for this event.
The course will be different this year due to construction taking place around the park. We will keep you posted with those changes and get a course map on the website as soon as we finalize the new course. Despite the change in course, we will still be offering prize money for those who break the course record and for repeat champions. If you break the course record (15:13 for men and 17:42 for women), you will win $50, and if you are a repeat champion, you will win $50, as well, so there is $200 in prize money up for grabs.
We look forward to another excellent event. You can find more information here on the website, including online registration, past results, photos, and more. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
Finally--if you wish to be an event sponsor, for $50 you will be listed on our race tshirts and our website as a 2019 sponsor. Please contact us if you're interested. Thank you and we'll see you on August 3rd!
