Since 1975, the Alternative Breaks Program has focused on providing immersion experiences for Georgetown students of all backgrounds to delve into understanding the specific culture, challenges, and opportunities facing host and partner communities. As students return to these communities year after year, they build and sustain long-term relationships with community partners, while benefiting both the trip participants and the communities visited.

Volunteers will line the course route to cheer you on and point you in the right direction. The 5k runners and 2k walkers will start at the same time, though the courses are slightly different.

The 5k run is hilly and includes pavement, brick, and trail paths. 5k runners will complete 3 laps of the course. The course map is below:
