Classes, Promos, and Events

  • The James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness in Zink Hall is hosting its annual 5K on Saturday, May 4, 2019.

    The 5K is taking place at South Campus, starting at the IUP baseball and softball fields. Registration for the race begins at 9:00 a.m. and the race will start at 10:00 a.m.

    All proceeds will be donated to Four Footed Friends, located in Indiana, Pennsylvania. Four Footed Friends, founded in 1982, is a nonprofit organization created to help homeless animals. We are excited to help out such a great nonprofit organization. 

    The cost to pre-register for the event is $15 for James G. Mill members and students, while general community pre-registration is $17. If you pre-register, you will get a free t-shirt the day of the race. Pre-registration is only until April 17—the cost of the race for everyone is $20 after April 17. You may sign up at the race. No t-shirts will be available for purchase, so pre-register today!

    There will be prizes for winners in different age brackets for both walkers and runners.

    Refreshments and snacks will be available after the race.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to email James G. Mill Fitness Center graduate facility manager, Tara Kibe, at, or stop by the Fitness Center for more information.

    Daily stress, sleepless nights, regretful snacking habits, and limited time leave us all lagging sometimes. Numerous studies have shown that just 30 minutes of physical activity five days a week can help with all of that—not to mention provide many other health benefits. While time these days is hard to come by, the James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness is offering some incentives to help make it easier for you to start fitting in some of that much-needed you-time.
