Dashing For Diplomas


A record number of runners and teams turned out for the 28th Annual Diploma Dash City Championship Race on a chilly morning on Feb. 25. Some 2,460 people, including 700 UTSA students, took part in the largest 5k chip–timed race that featured a new, certified racecourse around Main Campus.

This year, there were 600 more participants than last year, and race organizers said they were impressed with the turnout for the nearly three–decade–old tradition. The race generated more than $30,000 for the alumni Scholarship

To date, the alumni endowment has grown to more than $1 million, and the association has awarded more than $985,000 in scholarships.

—Anne Englert, Director of Alumni Programs
