UMS Reservoir Run



Thank you for your interest in the UMS Reservoir Run – 5k and kids race! Registration for our 2018 Run is closed.

Join us for a fun family-friendly event in May 2019! Stay tuned for details. 

We kick off the day with a 5k at 8AM, followed by the kids race at 9AM. This scenic out-and-back course travels down beautiful Reservoir Road. The mixed pavement, hard packed dirt course is hilly, but the serene setting makes for a low-stress, enjoyable run! The 5k is open to participants 12 and older.

The kids race is meant to be fun and manageable for all ages. It is a half-mile out and back course on Reservoir Road. We will be celebrating our community and empowering the children to have fun, spend time outdoors and support each other. Children 11 and under are invited to participate in this run.

The proceeds from this event benefit our Financial Aid fund.

Want to support the cause, but don’t feel like running? We need your help! Inquire about volunteering by emailing
