The Homecoming 5k was started in 2008 by Daron Trussell in order to add more tradition to the weekend. It was an opportunity to get more alumni and community involved in Tarleton's annual celebration. The first 5k (3.1 mile) race was held in 2008 and had just over 100 participants with numbers steadily increasing each year. The course is flat and fast and held entirely on campus with makes the race even more appealing for the beautiful campus scenery. The big draws for the race are the Long Sleeved Performance T-shirt, the low entry fee ($25) and the chip timing service for official race times. .

Also, we have added a new draw to the race that is close to our hearts. We wanted a way to honor 2 student workers (Hayley Burns and Anthony Gonzales) who passed away while employed with us. An endowed memorial scholarship has now been created so that we can honor those who are gone by supporting students with scholarships that help keep their memory alive.
