By / Running News / Tuesday, 21 April 2015 04:00

Despite being one of the top performing athletics programs at UNCW with many CAA championship wins under their belt, the university has decided to cut the track & field program. Given the talent on the team, the diversity that it brings to campus, and the importance of the track facilities to the local endurance community, it would be a major tragedy if the program was cut and the facilities were bull dozed. Since the announcement the team, coaches, & endurance community have been fighting for the opportunity to raise money to save the program. We have finally been given that chance! In order to save the UNCW track & field program we must raise $250,000 by the end of May 2015.
As a supporter of all local athletes and fitness enthusiasts, TrySports Wilmington has decided to hold a 5K for those who want to help raise funds and run to save UNCW Track & Field. When: 8:00 a.m. - Sunday, April 26th. Where: TrySports Wilmington. How: Register online at
Lastly, TrySports is also doing a raffle for a Felt Bixby Cruiser Bike You can purchase 1 ticket for $5 or 5 tickets for $20 either online or at TrySports Wilmington. The drawing will be held after the race (you do not have to be present to win).
