The campus recreation department hosted the sixth annual SF State 5K Walk, Run & Roll early Sunday morning, a race started as a way to keep school spirit high, even on days where people usually aren’t expected on campus.
“It’s a great way to get people out there and be active,” said Polo Chavez, special events student co-manager for campus recreation and co-organizer of the race. “SF State is a commuter school, so events like these really help foster a sense of community in the student body.”
About 100 spandex-clad students, faculty and community members participated in the race, which consisted of two laps around campus. Thirty volunteers from campus recreation, including an enthusiastic Gator mascot, cheered from the sidelines as every runner, jogger and speed walker ripped past the purple streamer at the finish line.
