Children under age 6 can run for free with a completed entry form; however, shirts will not be provided.


The SFSC Panther 5K Run/Walk takes a scenic route around the Highlands Campus, beginning in front of the SFSC University Center and progressing past the SFSC Theatre for the Performing Arts, the Tower of Enlightenment mural, and along College Drive to Memorial Boulevard. The returning course follows College Drive to the SFSC Norman L. Stephens Jr. Health and Science Education Center and back through the center of the campus, ending at the SFSC University Center.
