UPDATE: Due to expected rainy weather, Mustang Mile has been rescheduled for Thursday, May 30. A refund option is available for any currently registered teams that are not able to participate due to the reschedule. For more information, contact ASI Intramural Sports at 805-756-6044.

Gather your team of four and sign up for your chosen start time to compete in 12 different obstacles and activities for the eighth annual Mustang Mile Obstacle Course! The event returns on Thursday, May 16 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Doerr Family Field and Steve Miller and John Capriotti Athletics Complex. Obstacles include a sandbag carry, army crawl, sack race, inflatable games, and more.

Mustang Mile is held in honor of Carson Starkey, a Cal Poly student who passed away in 2008 from alcohol poisoning. The event supports the mission and message of Aware Awake Alive, a national nonprofit organization founded by Scott and Julia Starkey. Presented by ASI Intramural Sports in collaboration with WITH US, Mustang Mile seeks to provide health and wellness resources that will educate students on the signs of alcohol poisoning and the dangers of binge drinking.

All participants are invited to enjoy a free barbecue hosted by the Fraternity & Sorority Life office and visit a variety of booths at the Wellness Fair sponsored by Campus Health and Wellbeing.

Registration costs $50 per team of four and is open now at ASI Access. Only one team member is required to register. The registrant must be a Cal Poly Recreation Center member, but non-members are welcome to participate. Participants must be at least 16 years of age. Individuals under 16 are welcome to attend as supporters. All participants will receive a Mustang Mile water bottle.
