We are excited to once again be holding the I/ITSEC 5K (3.1 miles) Run/Walk/Roll to benefit the Tunnels to Towers Foundation and the I/ITSEC STEM Initiative. Come out and have a great morning of fun while you support these two great organizations!

You have four great options to participate:

  • Traditional 5K participation – Get out there, watch the sun rise, and put some pavement miles under your feet.
  • Snooze button – Don't do mornings (or running)? We have you covered with this option.
  • Virtual 5K – Want to participate on your own time and your own location? Here is your chance! Run a distance of 5k (3.1mi) the week of I/ITSEC with a GPS enabled app (Run Keeper, Map My Run, Zombies RUN!), like us on Facebook, and tag us with #IITSEC5K.
  • Not interested in running? Make a donation instead which will go miles in supporting our great charities.

Only in-person participants receive a shirt and medal. Shirt sizes are not guaranteed. Snooze and Virtual participants do not receive a shirt or medal.
