Cal U students don’t intend to let chilly weather slow them down. They’re organizing a Freezin’ 5K race and fun walk around Cal U’s main campus on Dec. 8.

Race proceeds will benefit scholarships at Cal U, as well as the River Town Program, created by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council to highlight recreation options in riverside communities including California and neighboring Coal Center.

Students in Cal U’s Parks and Recreation Management program have organized the Freezin’ 5K, which will be held rain or shine.

Cal U community members and the general public are encouraged to dress for the weather and join the fun.

Prizes will be awarded to the three fastest male and female finishers in the overall walk/run. Additional prizes will be awarded to the top two male and female finishers in each age group:


  • Age 20 and under
  • Age 21-29
  • Age 30-39
  • Age 40-49
  • Age 50-59
  • Age 60 and older

Registration begins at 8 a.m. Dec. 8 in Parking Lot 2, across from the Eberly Science and Technology Center. Visitor parking is available in the Vulcan Garage, off Third Street near the campus entrance.

The race begins at 9 a.m., with prizes awarded after the run.

Participants receive a discount if they pre-register. Registration fee for the 5K race is $20 for adults who sign up in advance, or $23 for race-day registration. Children ages 17 and younger pay $15 in advance, $18 on race day. Families of four or more may register for a total of $40 in advance or $43 on race day.

Registration fee for all fun walk participants is $7 in advance or $9 on race day.
