New this year! Res Hall Challenge!

We are having a Residence Hall Challenge within the 2014 Valley of the Lilies event. All WCU students living in a residence hall can indicate which hall during the online registration process to be entered to win the Res Hall Challenge! Each half marathon participant earns 2 points toward his/her hall and each 5k participant earns 1 point toward his/her hall. The points will be totaled after the race and the Res Hall with the most points will win an awesome prize! The prize is to be determined; we will share that info as soon as it has been finalized.

Packets may be picked up on Thursday (April 3) or Friday (April 4) from 4-8pm in the Campus Recreation Center at WCU.
