It’s time for the sixth annual SAC Boot Camp 5- and 10-mile run sponsored by the kinesiology department.
The race starts 8 a.m. Nov. 2 at the Leon Creek Greenway Trailhead, behind the Drury Inn at Loop 1604 and Interstate 10 West.
Proceeds from the race fund the Kinesiology Club and scholarship.
Also, money raised from this event helps fund club members’ travel to the Texas Association of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance convention in December.
The SAC Boot Camp has picked up several sponsors. Main Street Pizza & Pasta, Luby’s, and Academy Sports and Outdoors are just a few of the sponsors for this year’s race.
The race is open to the public, but the price has gone up.
This year, the 10-miler was $35 for early registration and now is $40, and the 5-miler was $25 and now costs $30.
Discounts are available to Alamo College students and active duty military and veterans. The 10-miler for students and military is $30. The 5-miler is $25. Military dependents are not eligible for the discount.
Wellness Coordinator Chris Dillon says the race date change was to benefit area runners.
“We moved the date of the race to be two weeks before the Rock and Roll Marathon, so that local marathon trainers can participate in the race to help with their training,” he said.
Participants need to register by 11:59 p.m. today. Late registration is available with a $10 fee and the T-shirt will not be guaranteed.
Participants can register online at active.com or in person at The Athlete’s Foot, 923 N. Loop 1604 E., or by calling Dillon at 210-403-2413.
