Runners participate in third annual Veterans Day Run

Posted on Nov 10, 2014 in Alumni News, Campus News, and News

On Sunday, November 9, the KU Veterans Alumni Network, in conjunction with the Collegiate Veterans Association, hosted the third annual Veterans Day Run. The run, which included 5k and 10k routes, began at Memorial Stadium—KU’s World War I memorial— and continued through campus.

More than 200 runners passed by the Campanile, a World War II memorial; the Korean War memorial; and the Vietnam War memorial. Runners of the 10k route made their way to West Campus to pass by the Dole Institute of Politics.
