Ursuline Academy Run for the Lions 5K Race

April 18th, 2021, 9:00 am

We are thrilled to bring this event back in-person! Due to outstanding participation last year, we are excited to offer virtual and in-person options this year.* 

So how do we pull off a Covid-safe race?

  • All attendees must be masked when not running.
  • If you feel unwell or have a fever the morning of the race, please stay home.
  • In-person runners will start in waves. The week of the race, you will be assigned a wave number. You will be asked to be socially distanced while you wait for your wave to be announced.
  • Runners at the start line will be physically distanced.
  • Bananas, individually packed snacks, and bottled water will be offered post-event. There will not be a traditional breakfast. 
  • According to Hamilton County Public Health, in-person races are not allowed to have award ceremonies on site. Race results will be shared virtually to minimize congregating post-race.

Awards for:

  • Top 3 overall finishers male & female (open to in-person runners)
  • Fastest UA student and UA alumna (open to in-person runners)
  • First finishers with strollers and dogs (open to in-person runners)
  • Course Completed the Furthest from UA (open to virtual runners)
  • Best Sweaty Selfie (open to in-person and virtual runners)
  • Best Coordinated Costumes (open to in-person and virtual runners)

Course: The course for in-person runners and walkers starts and finishes at Ursuline Academy. Once leaving the parking lot, proceed west on Pfeiffer Road and go through a business parking lot at the corner of Reed Hartman and Pfeiffer. Travel south on Alliance Road, take a right at Malsbary Road, and turn around before Reed Hartman. This is the half way point to turn around and go back. 

Packet pick-up: 

If you want your packet to include a t-shirt, make sure to register by April 2nd!

  • In-person runners: Packet pick-up will occur
    • April 15th from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm at Ursuline (5535 Pfeiffer Rd)
    • April 17th from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm at Fleet Feet (9525 Kenwood Rd)
  • Virtual runners: A digital swag bag will be emailed out the week of the race. 

*This is a non-refundable event. If for some reason the in-person race cannot occur, all registrants will be considered virtual runners. The balance of the registration fee collected above and beyond the price of a virtual registration will be considered a tax-deductible donation.
