The Calvin Classic 5K has been bringing community members together for a fun, energizing morning for over 30 years. This fall, we'll be hosting both an in-person AND virtual race on October 1, 2022 during Calvin's Homecoming and Family Weekend.

If you prefer to join us in-person, race details are available here.

How does this work?

  1. Sign up for the Calvin Classic 5K! Registration is open until Oct. 1. However, if you register by Sept. 12, you'll receive your shirt in time to wear it for your virtual race! There's also a Virtual Youth Fun Run available for ages 3-9.

  2. If you sign up by Sept. 12, you’ll receive your race day shirt, bib, and a Calvin sticker in the mail the week of September 26, 2022. Otherwise, you'll get your shirt after the race.

  3. Map out a 5K route where it is convenient to you and get running (or walking, or handcycling)! Yes, you can participate from anywhere in the world! This must be done by October 1, 2022.

  4. Make sure to share a photo or video of yourself in your race day shirt and bib to social media using the hashtags #CalvinClassic5K #CalvinHomecoming2022 to be eligible to win a number of a great prizes. You can also email with your photos.

  5. Enter your finishing times on the RunSignUp website.

NOTE: This is a GREAT opportunity to gather with fellow alumni in your region. If you’re interested in getting a group together, contact the Calvin alumni office for details.

So go out and run. Or walk. Or handcycle. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
