Thank you to everyone that registered for Race Into Finals 2020.  Unfortunately we had to cancel Race Into Finals 2020.   We fully refunded all registration fees. We hope  that we can have a race next year, tentatively scheduled for May 2, 2021. 

Thank you past participants! Your participation has helped us distribute nearly $25,000 to 60+ students who needed financial support during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please consider making a donation to the Kent State University College of Nursing 'Giving Tuesday' campaign. The first $5,000 donated will be matched dollar for dollar thanks to the generosity of Kent State CON Alumna Nancy Tinsley ’85.  Gifts can easily be made through the CON Giving Tuesday Giving Page and can be made via credit card or check.  Giving Tuesday runs until December 1, 2020. To donate directly to the College of Nursing, use this link:






Enjoy a scenic run or walk through Kent State University campus where terrain is mostly sidewalk and a couple rolling hills. Funds raised will benefit the College of Nursing Student Emergency Fund, designed to assist KSU Nursing Students during times of unexpected dire financial need. Your registration fee includes race timing, post event snacks, a cool drawstring bag, and an all new t-shirt. Register today to support the school and have a blast!

This is a smaller race with some fun prizes- like 'Middle of the Pack'- you might be a winner!!
