Notice the earlier date this year! The Race for the Golden Helix 5K (GH5K) is an annual 5 km (3.1 mile) open-road race around the beautiful campus of Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville, TN. The GH5K is professionally timed. All parking on the Tennessee Tech University campus is free and available to the public on the weekends. You will not be ticketed unless you park in a spot that is specifically reserved. The best parking for the race is adjacent to the Laboratory Science Commons (LSC), Memorial Gym, Millard Oakley STEM Center, or the Student Center.
The race is organized by the Student Affiliates of the American Society of Biochemistry and Microbiology (ASBMB) with the assistance of the Student Members of the American Chemical Society (SMACS) and the Chem-Med Club. The race is co-sponsored by the Tennessee Technological University Student Government Association SOLO Fund so that all students may race at no cost. Proceeds from the GH5K benefit the ASBMB and SMACS clubs, the Tennessee Technological University Foundation Chemistry Scholarships, and the Upper Cumberland Remote Area Medical (RAM) Clinic at Cookeville High School.
We're hoping this year's race will be SOLO funded again this year so current TN Tech students will be able to race for FREE (using a coupon code to be announced here immediately after funding is approved). Students must present valid student ID at packet pick-up.
