In addition to wearing your Team UM shirt to show your ’Canes pride, remember to wear comfortable clothing and shoes for the race.

Optional items to consider bringing include towels (large or small), bug spray, and a camera. Pack as lightly as you can, and leave personal belongings at the Team UM tent at your own risk.

The Team UM Corporate Run Theme is a Stronger U. Be sure to get creative and dress up as the strongest version of yourself. Employees are being encouraged to incorporate elements of their favorite superhero. For inspiration, please view our Corporate Run Video.
