Reminder: Support online student scholarships through the Bill Snyder Highway Half & 5K races

Submitted by Grant Guggisberg

K-State Online has partnered with the 2021 Bill Snyder Highway Half & 5K races to support scholarships for online students, and it's not too late to sign up. Registration fees increase on May 1, so if you're interested in participating, don't wait.

Race day for those running the in-person events is May 22. Participants who register with the promo code "WILDCAT" will have a portion of their registration fee go to support K-State Online students, regardless of whether they choose to run the in-person race or complete it virtually. The virtual race option allows anyone, including K-State Online's vast network of students and alumni in all 50 states and more than 30 countries, to participate in the annual race for the first time. More information on the virtual race can be found on the website

Each participant will receive the Bill Snyder Highway Half & 5K T-shirt as well as a finisher medal. In addition to supporting student scholarships by using the code "WILDCAT," the races also benefit a trio of charities in the Manhattan community.

Virtual participants track their run using GPS or an online mapping device, have an extended cap on the run times — six hours for the half marathon and three hours for the 5K — and can complete their run between May 1 and 22.

For more information or to register, visit the race website. Don't forget to use the code "WILDCAT" to help support online student scholarships.
