5K Run

University City 5k

Lace up your running shoes and hit the pavement to celebrate the 31st anniversary of the University City 5K. The race will be held during Alumni Weekend 2024, and runners of all skill levels are welcome to participate by walking, jogging or running the route. The run, dedicated to honoring the memory of Nick Pipino, will consist of two loops around Powelton Village.

In 1992, Nick's life was tragically cut short outside Cavanaugh's Restaurant & Bar, where he worked while pursuing his undergraduate degree at Drexel University. In keeping with Nick's love for the outdoors, the run has been organized since 1993 as a way to make something positive come out of Nick's untimely death.

Join us for something special and register today!
