The Helen and Arthur E. Johnson Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs is hosting the Trek the Trail 5k run/walk to benefit student scholarships. This event fosters leadership opportunities for students, is a zero-waste event concentrating on sustainability and leave-no-trace ethics, and is the only trail-based run/walk hosted a UCCS.

The event is being co-hosted by our outstanding college student organizations:

  • Exercise is Medicine
  • Beth-El Student Nurses Association
  • Nutrition Club 


In the last five years, Trek the Trail has raised over $9,000 in scholarship funds for students. 

The Trek the Trail 5k features beautiful UCCS campus trails and is the official UCCS Homecoming 5k. We can't wait to see you there!
