About the Victors 5K Run/Walk

Held over Homecoming Weekend, the Victors 5K Run/Walk was started in 2014 with the aim to bring U-­M friends, alumni, students, faculty, and staff together for a cause. The route weaves through the heart of U­-M’s campus, with entertainment along the way. Victors of all ages are invited to participate in the 5K at their own pace. This is a family-friendly event and strollers are welcome! Everyone will receive a t-­shirt and ribbon for participating. For a little friendly Wolverine competition, winners will be awarded ribbons for the best time in several categories!

Our Goal

The University of Michigan launched the Victors for Michigan campaign in 2013 with a number one priority to raise $1 billion for student support. By providing sufficient financial support, we can guarantee that a diverse group of the world’s brightest students will be able to study at Michigan. Nearly 70 percent of all Michigan undergraduate students receive some sort of financial aid, which includes grants, work-study, and loans. Your support will ensure a Michigan education is accessible for all talented, deserving students.

Your Impact

By participating in the Victors 5K or supporting a participant, you are helping create tomorrow’s victors: the next great physician to cure a disease, the next social worker to combat homelessness, the next novelist to tell a story that had never been told before. You make it possible for the next tech entrepreneur to build a transformational business, a gifted athlete to learn what it takes to be a leader. These students and so many others will achieve their dreams, and change the world, thanks to you.

We will record one male and one female winner in each of the following categories:​

  • 2010-2016 Recent Grad
  • 2000-2009 Alumni
  • 1990-1999 Alumni
