Support PLNU and celebrate Homecoming on campus or from wherever you are! 

Join us on Saturday, February 18th, 2023 for PLNU's third annual “We Are Loma 5K,” supporting the Loma Fund. We encourage all PLNU alumni, current students, staff, faculty & friends of PLNU to participate!   


Our in-person 5K will take place on Saturday, February 18th at 8:00 a.m. on PLNU's main campus. Relive your college days walking PLNU's campus, reminiscing about dorm life, and taking in the views once again. 


The virtual 5K is a 3.1-mile walk/run that can be completed at any pace, from any location, at any time on Saturday, February 18th. Represent PLNU and show your Loma pride from wherever you are in the world and know that you're connected to the greater PLNU family.                             

Registration fees will benefit the Loma Fund. All registrants will receive a 2023 PLNU Homecoming t-shirt and race bib. *Virtual participants - be sure to register by February 3rd to receive your t-shirt and race bib in time for the 5K! You may still participate in the 5K if you miss the registration deadline (Feb. 3), but we will no longer be able to guarantee delivery of the materials before the 5K for those participating virtually.
