Over the last seven years, Northwestern Athletics & Recreation hosted the event to commemorate former head football coach Randy Walker. The event will wind through Evanston and the Northwestern campus before finishing on historic Ryan Field. All runners will receive a short-sleeved, technical shirt, a ticket to a non-conference home football game (9/15 vs. UNLV, 11/16 vs. UMass) and entry into the race day partner and hospitality zone. Early registration fee will be $37.50 through June 30, when it will increase to $40 until July 26. Day-before and race-day registration will be $45. Northwestern University students can register for $25, but will not receive a football game ticket (student admission is complimentary for all Wildcats athletics events). In addition to the 5K, the event will feature various kids races. The age-group events for kids 14-and-under include a kids' mile, costing $15 (including a football gam ticket), and kids' dashes on the field for $10.
