War Eagle Run Fest

Sun February 20, 2022 Auburn University, AL 36849 US Directions
5K Course


The War Eagle Run Fest has three different event distances to offer participants. The race has a Half Marathon, a 5K and War Eagle Kids Mile. Both the Half Marathon and 5K are open to runners, joggers and walkers. The War Eagle Kids Mile is for children ages 3-12.  






The start line for the 5K will be near Toomer's Corner.  Runners will be corralled according to expected finish times with the fastest runners in the front and walkers in the back.  Both the Half Marathon and 5K races will start at 7:00am in a wave start fashion.  150-200 runners will be allowed to start approximately every 30 seconds.


Runner's will start on the Thach Concourse and run by the Outdoor Training Pool on Wire Road. The 5K course will take runner's past the Intramural Playing Fields, Football Practice Fields, and the Coliseum before turning into Jordan-Hare Stadium to #flydownthefield and finish on the 50-yard line.


5K Runners will have separate running lanes from Half Marathon runners so that faster runners in the Half Marathon do not have to worry about navigating around slower runners in the 5K.
