LIMITED INVENTORY REMAINING! Due to a surge in sign-ups, we anticipate running out of finisher's medals this year. Everyone who signs up before we run out will receive a medal, regardless of your finish time. As of 10/24/2022, we can also no longer guarantee shirt sizes.

The annual KU Vets Day 5K, hosted by the KU Student Veterans of America and the Veterans Alumni Network, honors our past/present veterans and raises awareness of the roles veterans play in our university and community. The 5K begins and ends at Memorial Stadium, traveling through the KU campus past KU’s war memorials. All  proceeds from the Vets Day 5K support KU Student Veterans of America chapter, the KU Veterans Alumni Network and the Lt. Gen. William K. Jones Military-Affiliated Student Center.
