Cal State to host fun run on Sunday

The Cal State San Bernardino women’s cross country team will hold a 5K-10K fun run beginning at 8 a.m. on Sunday. It is the primary fund-raiser for the program which competes in the fall.

The event typically draws about 300 participants according to Coyotes coach Tom Burleson, who added the biggest challenge is finalizing a date when the event doesn’t conflict with other local events.

The starting line is is off by the school’s soccer fields and the course winds around the campus.

The entry fee of $25 includes a T-shirt. Registration begins at 6:30 a.m. on site on race day. Applications are also available on-line through the school’s athletic department web site.

“This is big for us,” Burleson said. “The budget is tough and we’re like everyone, just trying to make it work. This provides most of the money for our operating budget.”
