ARAMARK Wake The Library 5K

On Saturday, Z. Smith Reynolds Library’s first annual Wake the Library 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run took place under beautiful sunny skies along with cool fall temperatures. Over 150 people participated in either the fun run or the 5K race. The great weather contributed to 40 people coming out and registering that morning.

The race was started by Student Government president, Jermyn Davis. The Demon Deacon made an appearance and awarded all the children in the fun run with Chick-Fil-A stuffed cows.

And They\'re Off!

Runners and walkers alike enjoyed the campus route that started and ended in front of the library and wound through the cross-country trail for 3.1 miles. Awards were presented for men and women in overall and age groups for first through third places. In the Fastest Greek contest, Delta Zeta won the sorority honors, while all the fraternities slept in.

The race was successful, thanks to the many individuals and organizations that supported our event: ARAMARK, Frank L. Blum Construction, SAFE, Fleet Feet Sports, Lenovo, Metabolic Effect, Gold’s Gym, WFU Campus Recreation, WFU Office of Multicultural Affairs, WFU Office of Student Life, Alibris, The Garage, Lowe’s Foods, Harris Teeter, Paceline Bicycles, SunTrust, DataMax, Chick-Fil-A, C& K Bagels, Village Tavern, Mark Welker, Earl Smith, WFU Bookstore, Kineticsware and the Student Government.

Thanks go also to all the ZSR Library staff who worked in the days leading up to the event, and to those who gave up their Saturday morning to help execute the many details that assured a safe, fun event for the WFU and Winston-Salem community. Many of our student assistants volunteered as well.

Take a look at the pictures of the event and of the contestants who came out to spend a gorgeous fall morning running and walking through Wake Forest while they supported ZSR Library’s programs.
