After a successful 2023, we will be back for 2024! Registration is OPEN!

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.  Past participation has helped us distribute nearly $25,000 to 60+ students who needed financial support during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your registration fee includes race timing, post event snacks, a swag bag, and an all new t-shirt. Register today to support the school and have a blast!

This is a smaller race for students, KSU faculty and staff, families, and community members. There are some fun prizes- like 'Middle of the Pack'- or 'School Your Professor!'- You could be a winner!! 

Those interested can run more - There is no charge to warm up with the 1 mile runners (timing and 1 mile prizes only for those registered). Also,  students receive a $10 discount on the 5K with the coupon code "Student"

Shirts guaranteed to runners registered by April 28. 
Packet pickup on race morning starting at 7:30 am.
Online registration is available until May 3 and day-of-race registration is available until 8:15 am (cash or check). Shirts not guaranteed after 4/28.
