    (St. George, UT) – Dixie State College of Utah President Dr. Stephen D. Nadauld has once again issued his annual challenge to the College and St. George-area community to try and beat him to the finish line as DSC will host the Fifth-Annual President’s Welcome Back Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, August 25, at 8 a.m., at Hansen Stadium on the DSC campus.

    The President’s Welcome Back Run/Walk is free for all Dixie State students, faculty and staff, and the community to participate. The near 5-kilometer course will start and finish at Hansen Stadium, and will weave around and through the DSC campus. As an added incentive, all participants who beat President Nadauld to the finish line will receive a voucher good for 25% off any apparel or novelty purchase at the DSC Bookstore.

    The event will also serve as an introduction for the DSC President’s Fitness Loops, a system of five walking or jogging trails ranging from .25 to 2 miles in length around and through the DSC campus. The Fitness Loops, along with the soon to be constructed “D-Circuit” physical fitness training facility, will make DSC the place for students, faculty and staff, and the community to not only exercise their minds, but their bodies as well. When completed, the “D-Circuit” facility, located just south of the Udvar-Hazy School of Business building adjacent to the sand volleyball courts, will feature eight workout stations that can be utilized both day and night.

    Registration forms for the President’s Fun Run/Walk are available at the DSC campus. Early registration is encouraged, as the first 250 entrants will receive a free race t-shirt, though entries will be accepted on race day. Check-in and late registration will begin at 7 a.m.

    For additional information on the DSC President’s Fun Run/Walk or to register by telephone, please contact Steve Johnson in the DSC Public Relations Office at 435-652-7544, or the DSC Campus Recreation Office at 435-652-7988.
