The San Antonio College Kinesiology Majors club is sponsoring the fifth annual SAC 10- and 5-Miler Boot Camp Run 8 a.m. Nov. 17.
The run will be at the Leon Creek Greenway Trailhead behind the Drury Inn at 15806 Interstate 10 West.
The run is open to the public.
The 10 miler is $35 and 5 miler is $25.
Alamo College students get a discount rate of $25 for the 10-miler and $20 for the 5-miler.
On average, depending on physical activity, a student can finish a 5-mile run in one hour and 10 minutes and a 10-mile run in two hours and 30 minutes, kinesiology Instructor Chris Dillon said.
Proceeds from this event go to funding the Jean Dudney and Nelda Drury kinesiology scholarships named for two former professors.
Each scholarship is $500.
The Dudney scholarship is for a kinesiology student, and the Drury scholarship is for a dance student.
Kinesiology majors also help with the event by securing sponsors and taking donations in the form of gift cards from Academy Sports & Outdoors.
Money raised goes to students of the K-Club to attend the Texas Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance from Nov. 28-Dec. 1 in Galveston.
This conference is important to kinesiology majors.
“This is where my students began to network and establish their contacts for the field they will go into,” Dillon said.
Last year the boot camp run drew 250 participants and raised $2,500.
