Our Mission


The mission of the Chase Charlie Races is three-fold:


1. To create a unique and quality series of races that compliments other activities occurring on campus during Ball State University’s Homecoming Weekend. (Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the Chase Charlie Races will only consist of a virtual race.  We plan to have our on-campus 5K and Kiddie 100 back in Fall 2021.) 

2. To provide undergraduate students with a valuable immersive learning opportunity that benefits the Sport Administration Fund for Excellence, which provides scholarship and professional development opportunities for high achieving sport administration students.


3. To educate and prepare the Muncie community for a lifetime of healthy living.
