Ready. Set. Go! UC Law hosts fourth annual Bearcat Dash and Bash

Runners, walkers, family and friends are invited to participate in the fourth annual Bearcat Dash and Bash starting at 8:30 a.m., Sunday, Oct. 6, at the University of Cincinnati’s Nippert Stadium.  This Cincinnati Law tradition features several events including the signature 18.19K and 5K races. This year's event also marks the second year for the Future Bearcats Dash which will last 100 yards – for all those future UC Bearcats.

All races begin and end on UC’s campus, and participants will enjoy the sights and history of the campus while running. Runners will also get the chance to watch themselves cross the finish line on Nippert Stadium’s Jumbotron along with having their finisher’s photo taken.

Again this year, runners can team up for both the 5K and 18.19K races. Teams can raise money together and enjoy running together as a group in matching outfits or speeds.
