    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - Dixie State President Dr. Stephen D. Nadauld has once again issued his challenge to the University and St. George-area community to try and beat him to the finish line as DSU hosts its Sixth-Annual President’s 5K Fun Run/Walk on Saturday, Sept. 14, at 8 a.m., at Hansen Stadium.

    The President’s Run/Walk is free for all Dixie State students, faculty and staff, and the community to participate. The 5-kilometer course will start and finish at Hansen Stadium, and will weave around and through the DSU campus. As an added incentive, all participants who beat President Nadauld to the finish line will receive a voucher good for 25% off any apparel or novelty purchase at the DSU Campus Store.

    Registration forms for the President’s Fun Run/Walk are available at the DSU campus and online at www.dixie.edu. Early registration is encouraged, as the first 250 entrants will receive a free race t-shirt, though entries will be accepted on race day. Check-in and late registration will begin at 7 a.m. For more information on the 5K run, please contact the DSU Campus Recreation Office at 435-652-7988.

    The 5K run will also serve as the kick-off for Dixie State’s Hall of Fame Weekend. Following the run at 12 noon, DSU Athletics will induct five new members into its Hall of Fame in a ceremony held at the Gardner Center Ballroom. The 2013 class includes former Dixie two-sport star and head men’s basketball coach Dave Rose; former Dixie State women’s soccer coach Linda Huddleston; longtime DSU official scorer and timekeeper Ken Jolley, and the 1963 Dixie College Football Team – the only team in school history to record a perfect undefeated season. For tickets and more information on the DSU Athletic Hall of Fame induction ceremony, please contact Derek Dawes at 435-879-4295.

    Other Hall of Fame weekend activities include the 2013 DSU Football home opener vs. Azusa Pacific Saturday night at 6 p.m., at Hansen Stadium. For ticket and game information, please visit www.dixieathletics.com.

    Then on Sunday, Sept. 15, DSU will host its Sixth-Annual University Convocation, featuring inspirational addresses by newly inducted DSU Athletic Hall of Famer Dave Rose and his wife, Cheryl, who is also a DSU alumna. The convocation will begin at 7 p.m., in the Avenna Center Cox Auditorium. Admission is free and open to the all DSU students, faculty and staff, and the community, and light refreshments will be served following the event.
