The fourth annual Don Schneider Memorial Challenge Run will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 19, and is part of the college's "SNC Day" activities. New this year is a kids' challenge race with special obstacles for kids ages 6-10.

The 5k course will begin and end on campus, looping south on Lost Dauphin Road and through Schneider Stadium. Obstacles are not extreme and will include climbing the stairs at Schneider Stadium, hurdles, crawling under ropes and climbing hay-bale hills.

Registration is $15 and runners will receive a commemorative long-sleeved T-shirt. Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in each division.

The late Don Schneider was a longtime trustee, adjunct professor and generous friend of St. Norbert College, as well as an avid runner. Proceeds from the race will benefit the Don Schneider Memorial Scholarship at St. Norbert College. Register at http://www.snc.edu/sncday.

Showers and food/refreshments will be available in Schuldes Sports Center for runners after the race.

SNC Day is a campus "open house" held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Race participants can stay and enjoy boat rides on the Fox River, three stages of entertainment, food, loads of children's activities, mini-lectures by St. Norbert faculty including president Tom Kunkel, interactive science activities for kids in the new Gehl-Mulva Science Center, wellness activities, trolley rides to Schneider Stadium to watch St. Norbert take on Beloit College in soccer (admission is free to the public), and horse-drawn wagon rides through campus.
