Matt's Run 2013

Matt's Run 2013

Come join us at the 8th annual Matt's Run 5k run/walk event on Saturday, October 19, 2013 at 8 a.m.

Matt's Run is a growing tradition at Cal Poly Pomona that raises money for student scholarships and is dedicated to the life of Matthew Myers, a communication student who died in 2005 after a car struck him on campus. An avid runner with a passion to help others, Matt's family worked with the university to sponsor an annual scholarship 5k run dedicated in his memory. Since 2005, Matt's Run has awarded 48 scholarships.

The USA Track & Field Certified course takes participants through Cal Poly Pomona's campus and scenic landscape, surrounded by animal pastures and citrus groves.

Runners and walkers of all ages are invited to participate. Pre-register now ($20 for students and $35 for all others) and receive a T-shirt and logo item. Registration on the day of the event is an additional $5.

Awards will be given to the fastest male and female runners from various age groups. The Myers Cup is presented to the most spirited group or organization during the event.

The race begins at 8 a.m., with late registration and bib pick-up starting at 6:30 a.m. After the race, join us for a hot dog BBQ or visit the Pumpkin Festival at the Farm Store and the insect Fair in the Bronco Student Center. There will be a corn maze, petting zoo, horse rides, live music and more!
