Howard Hustle offers day-after-Thanksgiving exercise

Runners start the Hesston College Howard Hustle Two-Mile Run/Walk during the college’s 2013 Thanksgiving Weekend celebration

Instead of remaining sedentary on the sofa, Hesston College offers an opportunity for exercise and fun with the 23rd annual Thanksgiving Weekend Howard Hustle Two-Mile Run/Walk at 11 a.m., Friday, Nov. 28.

The event has become a tradition both of Hesston College’s Thanksgiving Weekend celebration and also within the local community, offering a scenic tour through and around the Hesston College campus and Dyck Arboretum of the Plains.

Early entry until Nov. 20 is $20. Entry after Nov. 20 is $25. The entry fee includes a long-sleeved tech shirt and race number. Race proceeds will be donated to Hesston College’s Exercise Science Equipment Project in support of the new exercise science program of study.

Medals will be awarded to overall and age group winners. Participants will also have several chances to win door prizes. Registration can be found here.

The day of the race, race packets may be picked up and on-site registration completed from 9 to 10:45 a.m. in front of Hesston College’s Bontrager Student Center.
