The James G. Mill Inaugural 5K held on the IUP campus this past Saturday, April 30, 2011, was a huge success.
Sunshine and clear blue skies helped add to the excitement of the staff and participants of the James G. Mill Center for Health and Fitness’s very first 5K Run/Walk event.
Only expecting to get a maximum of around forty participants, with the persistent promoting of the fitness center staff, the support of the James G. Mill Fitness Center members, and the support of the IUP community, expectations were exceeded with over one hundred participants!
Thank you to our volunteers and sponsors, the campus police, Rick Kutz, and the fitness center staff for all of your hard work many months back when all of this was just an idea. Thank you to everyone who came out Saturday to participate and show your support. It was truly a wonderful experience!
Winners for each age group are as follows:
First: Mike Lockhart
Second: Mike Carpenter
Third: Alex Graber
