Our next 5k & 10k race will be Sunday, April 09, 2017.
10K will start at 9:45 am.
5K will start at 10:00 am.
Because the location of the race is changing for 2017 and future races, it is being rebranded. It will no longer be called 5k/10k @Three Springs for Books & Things. We will post updated information as it becomes available.
The purpose of this event is to fund scholarships for Exercise Science students. This race also provides a hands-on learning experience for students in ES 480: Administration in Sport Administration.
Online registration is now OPEN!
Race-day registration will be available beginning 1/2 hour before the first race on Sunday.
If you are not able to participate, but would still like to support our

The race will be held rain or shine. If lightning is in the area, the race may have a delayed start or, depending on the intensity of the weather, may be canceled. The determination will be made by the Event organizers.
As a reminder, the registration fees are non-refundable.
April 10, 2016 was our fourth annual 10k @Three Springs for Books & Things organized by faculty, staff, and students within the Fort Lewis College Exercise Science department. We have also added a 5K. All of the proceeds from the entry fees for the 5&10k @Three Springs for Books & Things go toward a scholarship fund for eligible Exercise Science students. This event raises scholarship money for tuition, room & board, books, and fees to help support the education of promising students within our department. Eligible students are enrolled in one of five options/majors: Athletic Training, K-12 Teaching, Exercise Physiology, Exercise Specialist, and Sport Administration.
Testimonials from 10K scholarship recipients:
"Receiving the ES scholarship was truly a blessing. It helped cover school-related expenses and was especially useful for purchasing textbooks. The scholarship was yet another way the ES department has assisted me in my journey to become a PE teacher. The 5k and 10k are great events that engage the community in physical activity while supporting hard-working students in the ES department. Thanks for your participation and support!" Tom Poole, 2015-16 scholarship recipient.
"Throughout the school year, this scholarship has helped me IMMENSELY! It helped me pay any outstanding fees at the beginning of each semester, and living expenses. Upon graduation, I would like to create a non-profit for Native youth that embeds fitness and wellness, or go the route of Physical Therapy. Either or, I know I will be happy with my future decisions." Casey Long, 2015-16 scholarship recipient.
"My goal is to graduate from Fort Lewis College in December 2016 and to continue my education in Fall 2017 in law school. The scholarships I received helped me tremendously in my time at Fort Lewis. They were obviously a financial help, but more importantly they gave me acknowledgment for all the hard work I have poured into my education that gave me an extra drive to keep going." Kate Bayes, 2015-16 scholarship recipient.
