Annual race tradition to feature a participant challenge for 2018 event

2017 Manickam Mosey

Hesston College will host its annual two-mile run/walk, The Manickam Mosey, at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 29, during a weekend of community-wide homecoming events. The 2018 event will feature an Alumni/Community vs. Students Challenge, with the group producing the largest number of race participants laying claim to the first Manickam Mosey Challenge Trophy Cup.

The Manickam Mosey, which is named in honor of Hesston College President Dr. Joseph A. Manickam, is a tradition in its twenty-seventh year. The event gives alumni visiting the college for homecoming weekend an opportunity to be active along with students and community members while enjoying the picturesque Hesston College campus and neighboring Dyck Arboretum of the Plains.

Participants who register by Sept. 20 will pay an early entry fee of $16, which includes a race shirt and number. Starting Sept. 21, registration will be $22. Registration can be completed online.

Medals will be given to overall and age group winners, along with a chance to win door prizes.
