Walkers and runners alike are invited to participate in Texas A&M International University’s (TAMIU) first-ever Dustdevil Virtual 5K, now underway through Saturday, Sept. 12.

The Dustdevil Virtual 5K is open to the public. Registration is available at https://go.tamiu.edu/virtual-5K-signup. The event began Sunday, Sept. 6.
