We Are Loma 5K

Run, walk, or jog 3.1 miles in our annual Homecoming 5K!

PLNU’s fourth annual We Are Loma 5K, supporting the Loma Fund will be held on Saturday, February 17. We invite all PLNU alumni, students, staff, faculty, friends, and family to participate! Participants may join students, staff, and faculty to race around PLNU’s campus or compete virtually from anywhere in the world. 

All proceeds will go towards the Loma Fund, to support the need for student scholarships and the transformational work of the University. By giving to the Loma Fund, you'll be counted among the community of supporters who are preparing students to make a difference with their lives and careers. Your contribution of any amount to the Loma Fund can help prepare students to fully become who they're called to be.
