March 28, 2016

The 11th Annual Rice Recreation Center Flying Owls 5K  will take place Sunday.

We encourage families, teams, students, runners and walkers to come out for a scenic run through the Rice University campus and for a post-race celebration with refreshments and entertainment. The funds raised through your participation in this event will contribute to providing educational opportunities that promote active and healthy living to the Rice students, faculty, and staff. The mission of the Recreation Center is to encourage a lifetime of health and wellness for the students, faculty, and staff of Rice University by promoting the physical, social, and emotional benefits of physical activity. To that end, a wide array of recreational programs and services has been created and are offered in an effort to increase knowledge about and provide opportunities for the development of healthy behavior patterns.
