Every year, Campus Recreation and Wellness and the School of Health Sciences team up to host the Valley of the Lilies Half Marathon and 5K. This year, the sixth annual Valley of the Lilies race will be held on Saturday, April 2.
Shauna Sleight, Director of Campus Recreation and Wellness said, “The race started as a half marathon only but, after the inaugural year, the decision was made to add the 5K so the race could be more studentfocused and attract a wider range of participants.”

Western Carolina offers many programs all over the world. Some of these places include Argentina, Australia, England, Japan, and even South Africa.
