Registration is open for fourth annual Northwestern Athletics Run For Walk, a 4.1 mile run and 5K family walk, which will be held Sunday,
August 9, 2015 to honor former head football coach Randy Walker. The race will once again finish on Ryan Field and has been named by the Chicago Area
Runner's Association as a CARA Runners' Choice Circuit event for 2015. Big Brothers Big Sisters is the official charitable partner of the race. 

For the past seven years -- the last three as the Run for Walk -- Northwestern fans, supporters and friends of the late Walker have
assembled to honor him by taking part in one of his favorite hobbies -- walking around Evanston and the NU campus with his wife, Tammy, and their dog, Magic. This year, the 5k family walk will continue and join the 4.1 mile run through Evanston's tree-lined streets before participants will finish on Ryan Field
while watching their achievement on the video board. The unique run distance harkens back to Randy's uniform number 41 during his collegiate playing days at Miami University.
