Event Information
Friar 5K
PC's annual festival of fitness and camaraderie returns on Saturday, Oct. 2, as a signature event during Homecoming, a weekend packed with exciting events for the entire Friar community.

Students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and the public are invited to run or walk the 3.1-mile USA Track and Field-sanctioned course around the Providence College campus. Sign up as an individual or as a team to be part of the fun.

All runners will receive a ticket for one complimentary beverage at Homecoming Friar Fest — an outdoor party complete with food, drinks, and plenty of cheer — which takes place later that afternoon. Awards will be handed out at Friar Fest for the overall male and female winner, as well as the top three male and female finishers in each age category.

Pre-registration is highly recommended and a free cotton race t-shirt is included in the entrance fee. T-shirt sizes are on a first come, first serve basis.

Whether you are a female graduate or are running in honor of one, we invite you to support Providence College with an additional donation to the Providence College National Alumni Association Scholarship Fund. All runners who make an additional gift through the registration form will receive an upgraded race-day shirt to celebrate 50 years of women at PC!
