We are very disappointed to announce the incredibly difficult decision to cancel all Pack Athletics day and residential camps as well as our adult soccer league. We understand the value of camps to our community and we will miss the opportunity to develop local youth while showcasing our staff, facilities and university.

The COVID-19 health crisis is fluid and ever-changing, so our decision was made based on current information. Governor Polis has extended the “Stay-at-Home” Order, cases in Pueblo are on the rise and our University is not willing to put its staff, students or youth at risk.

Our number one goal is to protect our community. We also want to give our student-athletes every chance to have a safe July and a full return to participation in August. We spent hundreds of hours trying to make camps and our league possible. We are not being complacent one bit, but there are just too many concerns to overcome.

Benefitting CSU-Pueblo Student Athlete Scholarships

This year we are combining the Dr. Dan Memorial 5K and the Spank Blasing 5K into one awesome run! There is a new course around the CSU-Pueblo campus with lots of support from the CSU-Pueblo student athletes. The entry fee includes an official race shirt, complimentary post-event Aquafina water and Gatorade, and a free Miller Lite (for those 21 and older). Music will be provided by REV89 at the finish and chip timing will be provided by the SOCO Runners Club. There will also be prizes for the top 3 male and female finishers.

All of the proceeds raised will be donated to scholarships for CSU-Pueblo students. During registration you can choose to donate to Dr. Dan’s scholarship fund for undergraduate research or to Spank Blasing’s scholarship fund for student-athlete scholarships.
