Jumbo StampedeRun with the Herd!
Join the stampede in the 3rd annual Homecoming 5k charity road race! Thunder through campus, running past memorable highlights of your Tufts experience: painting the cannon, attending class on the academic quad, cheering on the Jumbos at Ellis Oval, and kissing under Bowen Gate. The Jumbo Stampede is a 5k run that launches you up atop the Hill and then leads you down through campus to the outdoor track where you’ll finish like a rock star to the cheers of fans in the stands.

Open to students, alumni, faculty, and staff, this 5k run is sure to be a spirited sprint into homecoming festivities! Special prizes will be awarded for runners with the most school spirit and the best costume, so dress to impress! $5 of your registration fee will support financial aid for undergraduate students.

Prizes • Refreshments • Post-race Party • T-shirts* • And More!

$15 for current Tufts students ($20 after 10/7)
$20 for Tufts alumni, faculty, staff & friends ($25 after 10/7)
