In an average 5K race, participants take 6,200 steps toward their goal — the finish line. In the Friar 5K, every step you take will help the PC Fund reach its goal — providing an even more transformative experience for the entire Providence College community.
Register today for the Friar 5k, a chance to walk or run in support of the PC Fund. Our 3.1-mile USA Track & Field-sanctioned course will lead you through the PC campus and surrounding Elmhurst neighborhood - beginning and ending at Providence College's Harkins Hall.
Faculty and staff are encouraged to form a team (minimum of 4 to a team) and participate in the Friar 5K. Please click here for more information on faculty/staff registration.
After the race, participants and their families are encouraged to stay on campus to attend the College's annual Friar Fanfest on Slavin Lawn, sponsored by the Office of Alumni Relations and the Department of Athletics.
