Ham & Legs 2023
Friday, September 29th, 2023 12 p.m. - 3 p.m.
Ham & Legs is a 5K fun run/walk on Hamilton’s campus. If running or walking is not your thing, come cheer on your colleagues, or volunteer to be an event supporter. This fun-filled event inspires the Hamilton community to engage in physical activity while potentially earning a T-shirt, gift card, or more!
All participants will report to Pritchard Track to begin their event. You will check in with event staff at the registration table located at the end of track closet to Dunham dorm and be provided further instruction for beginning your event.
Walkers may begin their event any time from 12pm onward, and must conclude by 3pm. All walkers will remain on Pritchard Track for the duration of their walk. Each lap of the track is 1/4 mile. Completing the entire 5K is not mandatory, however, a minimum of 6 laps (1.5 miles) is strongly recommended. Grab a partner, form a small group, or walk solo. The choice is yours!
All 5K runners will have a 12:15pm send off from the Pritchard Track start point. They will complete a 5K loop by exiting the track to continue up to Griffin road via access road, turning around at Valley View road, and returning back via the same course. The course is completed by finishing off with a partial lap of the track. See the course map for visual representation.
Runners are expected to follow standard, safe road-running etiquette by running against the flow of traffic towards the shoulder. The road course will be under supervision by an event volunteer and Campus Safety officers to ensure the safety of participants.
See event map for more course information.
Water dispensers will be available on site and participants are encouraged to support campus sustainability by bringing their own water bottles.
A variety of grab-and-go snacks will be available to participants after completing their event.
All participants who register and complete their event will be entered into the following raffles:
