10th Annual Friars 5K

  • 1 Cunningham Square Providence, RI, 02918 United States (map)

Friar 5K, 10 years running! PC's annual festival of fitness and camaraderie returns for its tenth year on Saturday, Oct. 5, as a signature event during Homecoming, a new weekend packed with exciting events for the entire Friar community.

We’re celebrating 10 years by making this year’s race bigger and better than ever. Students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and the public are invited to run or walk the 3.1-mile USA Track and Field-sanctioned course around the Providence College campus and join us after the race for an Oktoberfest celebration. Sign up as an individual or as a team to be part of the fun.

This year's race will take place during PC's Homecoming Weekend. Click here to learn more about Homecoming: homecoming.providence.edu
