The 5K Run for Recreation is a 3.1 mile footrace held by Intramural Sports. 2010 is the first year it has been held by Intramural Sports. There has always been a large population of runners found running around Davis and the UC Davis campus area, especially the Arboretum. Seeing this, Intramural Sports thought it would be a good idea to host an event for runners (IM Sports fees need to be spent somehow). The 2010 event takes place May 15 at 9 a.m. for the competitive level and 9:15 a.m. for the recreational level. The 2010 run begins and ends at Hutchison IM Field. There is a $10 entry fee and the top female and the top male runners in the competitive level will receive a IM Sports Champion T-Shirt and have their photo up on the Hall of Fame.
To promote this event IM sports is offering gift bag to the first 50 entries.

- It does require an IM card if you are not a registered student. The fee is $10 per runner.
