The course will highlight many of the more popular sites among these two cities in addition to the Purdue campus. This will be a great opportunity for the Purdue alumni, students and Purdue sports fans to participate in a half marathon and 5k race on the Purdue campus and also offer spectators a day to cheer on those participating in the race! On Sunday, October 21, visitors can end the weekend on a high note during the "Jack Hanna's Into the Wild" performance at the Loeb Playhouse on Purdue University campus.  As many of you may know, Jack Hanna is known worldwide for his adventures with exotic and fascinating animals.  Sunday afternoon he will showcase some of his unique and exotic, furry and feathered animal friends from all parts of the world live onstage! See video clips and hilarious bloopers from his TV show, hear about his amazing adventures, and listen to touching stories about endangered animals from around the world.
