The Purdue University Calumet Fitness Center hosts its 11th annual Spring Fling 5K Ramp Run/Walk at 9 a.m., Saturday (4/23). Race day registration begins at 7:30 a.m. in the university’s Student Union & Library, east of Woodmar Avenue, north of 173rd Street.
The Spring Fling, part of the Gold Cup Series, features a course through the Purdue Calumet campus, including up and down the ramps of the university’s four-level parking garage. Last year’s event attracted some 500 participants.
The race day registration fee is $22 (including a shirt) or $17 (without a shirt). Spring Fling proceeds will benefit the Jennie Hamilton and John Friend Scholarship Fund for Purdue Calumet fitness management and nursing students.
