The 5th Annual Bearcats Dash & Bash takes place on October 4, 2020—your Cincinnati tradition for the First Sunday in October!


Start times:

18.19K (8:30am)

5K (9:00am)

Future Bearcats Dash (10:00am)


All races finish in historic Nippert Stadium!  Watch yourself run up the field on the JumboTron! 


The 5K run/walk winds through UC's award-winning Uptown campus, which features works by some of the world's most renowned architects.  


The 18.19K course celebrates the year of UC's founding in 1819.  This point-to-point course starts on campus, then takes runners out beyond: through Clifton's historic Gaslight District; past Spring Grove Cemetery; and through Fairview Park with a stunning overlook of the City. 


After the Dash, celebrate your success at the Bash! This post-race party will be held around the concourse of Nippert Stadium beginning at the start of the race.  Enjoy live music and exchange tear-away tickets on your race bibs for FREE food, soft drinks, and beer from several vendors.  Additional refreshments will be available for purchase.


All proceeds and donations benefit UC’s Athletic Scholarship Fund and the Ohio Innocence Project at UC’s College of Law.
