Texas A&M University Student Health Services, Health Education and Aggie REACH (Representatives Educating About College Health) will host the 10th Annual Cannonball Run on Saturday, November 10th, 2012. This chip-timed race will raise money for testicular cancer research as this is the most common type of cancer found in college aged men. All proceeds benefit testicular cancer research at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The Cannonball Run will feature runners from Texas A&M faculty, staff, students and the Bryan-College Station community.
The Cannonball Run course is a nice, flat 5k course around and through the Texas A&M campus. Water stations, split time indicators and cheering supporters make the course an enjoyable one; a great training run! On-site registration begins at 8:00 am, the race begins at 9:00 am.
Read what past participants have said:
"Definitely a FUN run!! The organizers were awesome and very friendly. Was nice to see the friendly faces along the way cheering us on. The door prizes were a nice surprise and there were many of them. I hadn';t run a 5k in a few years and did not feel out of place. I give the Cannonball Run two thumbs up!"
"I enjoyed this 5k - it was very well run. I appreciated the volunteers who were cheering all along the way - that really does make a difference! Also, it was nice to have the 1 mile and 2 mile split times called out as we passed each mark.
