Second Annual NACIS Fun Run and Walk

Doing it once just wasn't enough. 
You know you miss that feeling... heart pounding, pulse racing, sweat dripping... the burning thighs, the hormonal ecstasy... But the euphoria never lasts, and a year is a long time to wait. Soon, though--very soon--you'll get to do it again. Yes, it's almost time for another NACIS FUN RUN! A jaunt through the hippy Big-Ten heart of the Upper Midwest's capital city, with its glittering skyline towering above the roaring falls of the nation's greatest river, is sure to get your heart pounding and provide just the excuse you need for that extra breakfast pastry the morning after... and, let's face it, each day of the rest of the conference.

See the route map below! Download the map to see the fine detail.

The run route's length is 5.3 miles and the walk route's length is 3.25 miles.
