Virtual Wildcat Fun Run: Homecoming 2022

Wildcat Fun Run (Virtual) - Homecoming 2022

NMU Alumni Relations is hosting a virtual 5K Wildcat Fun Run during Homecoming 2022 for the NMU community to show their Wildcat pride…near and far!

Registration is required. The cost is $25 for the NMU community (alumni, friends, parents, community members) and includes Wildcat shoelaces. Northern Michigan University will use a portion of the revenue generated by registrations for the event to support the NMU Food Pantry. NMU students can register for $15 (price includes Wildcat shoelaces) and student status will be verified at registration.

Those who register before September 5, 2022, will receive the shoelaces prior to race time, so you can lace up with pride for your 5K run/walk. If you register after September 5, 2022, you will still receive the swag item, but it may not arrive in time for the race period. Participants can complete the 5K between Saturday, September 17 and Saturday, October 1. Once each participant completes the race, they will send a photo to to be entered into a drawing to win a prize and be featured on our NMU Alumni social media channels.

If you will be in Marquette for Homecoming weekend (September 23-24), you are welcome to run/walk the Wildcat Fun Run around NMU’s beautiful campus - don’t forget to snap some pics!

We are excited to continue a Wildcat tradition and celebrate Homecoming 2022 virtually with our NMU alumni and friends. #alwaysNMU #GoCats
