Little 5 Bike Race
Held in late April every year, DePauw's Little 5 bike race has been a campus tradition since the first race in 1956. The first race was sponsored by Union Board as a fund raiser for the American Cancer Fund. Fourteen teams of male riders from various living units competed. The race has changed some since 1956. Today, there are men's and women's races, and the race has been moved from the streets around East College to the track at Blackstock Stadium. Even if you're not a fan of the race, Little 5 week offers something for you. The steering committee sponsors a variety of special events which include a blood drive, mud volleyball, a car stuff, tomato dodgeball, and the musical/comedy review, Cyc-Sing.
