Can't make it back to campus this spring? Join in on the reunion fun by participating in our Virtual Gaucho Gallop!

During the 14th Annual All Gaucho Reunion, we're introducing something different. If you can't make it back to campus this year, then join us wherever you are! Sign up for the Virtual Gaucho Gallop and run a 5k in your community anytime during All Gaucho Reunion weekend.

You can run, jog, or walk anywhere you like. Whether it be a trail, road, or on the treadmill, this race is your own. Be sure to time yourself and submit your score to see how you measure up against our other racers.

Virtual race runners will still receive a Gaucho Gallop T-shirt. The deadline to register and guarantee a shirt by April 25th is April 10th. Be sure to take a photo on race-day and post it with #gauchogallop. Photos can also be sent to

Proceeds will support the Alumni Scholarship Fund, empowering current and future students to invent the future.
