After consuming a small or large Gut Pak participants will run the mile back to the finish line. All proceeds benefit Mission Waco.

Freshman Class Council (FCC) develops relationships and implements activities and events designed to engage members of the first year class. FCC is excited to provide a fun and unique race for the Baylor and Waco communities to enjoy a great meal and give back to the local area.
Proceeds from this event will benefit Mission Waco, a local Christian non-profit providing holistic, relationship-based programs. Specifically, proceeds will support Jubilee Theater, the Youth Arts initiatives of Mission Waco. In 2019 the Gut Pak Run raised $2,800 for Mission Waco, and we look forward to surpassing that goal with the 2020 event!
