Cal Poly Students to 'Run for Music' Feb. 7

SAN LUIS OBISPO — The third annual “Run for Music” 5K/10K will take place at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 7, on campus to raise funds for Cal Poly’s instrumental ensembles.

The run will begin and conclude at the UU Plaza. Check-in and same-day registration will begin at 9 a.m. in the plaza, while musical ensembles present pre-race entertainment.

Online registration in advance is preferred; however, participants may also sign up on the day of the run for an additional cost. Registration fees range from $15 to $35 in advance and from $20 to $40 the day of the race. Registration fees cover the entry fee, post-race refreshments, race-day entertainment, and a T-shirt. Competitors will be eligible for prizes of gift bags donated by local sponsors.

Proceeds will go toward sponsoring Cal Poly’s spring chamber music series and purchasing new equipment for the bands.
