St. John’s Athletics, in partnership with the St. John’s Army ROTC, invite you to the Red Storm 5K Run/Walk. This race will take place entirely on St. John’s University’s Queens campus and will support both student-athlete scholarships and the Army ROTC program. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Lead The Way Fund, Inc. which is a non-profit organization established to raise funds in support of disabled U.S. Army Rangers and the families.  The race will start at 10AM.

Kids 12 and under are also invited to join in on the fun at the Junior Johnnies Fun Run. The Junior Johnnies Fun Runs will be broken up by age brackets and the distances will increase from 100 yards to a ½ mile. Each runner will receive a prize at the end of their race. All the Fun Runs will take place in the DaSilva Memorial Field Track/Lacrosse on campus.

Parking is available on St. John’s campus next to the start line and the Q46 bus will drop you right in front of the university if public transportation is your means of travel.
