The GEAK5 is back and will be hosted on Sunday, April 28, 2024!


The Graduate Engineering Association (GEA) hosts the annual GEAK5 race, in support of students’ mental and physical health.

All proceeds for the race go to the GEA Graduate Student Travel Awards which support students traveling for conferences, presentations, and research opportunities. The GEAK5k allows the GEA to award more travel awards, allowing more students the opportunity to present their research and represent the KU School of Engineering.
