Runners and walkers invited to lace up for Bobcat Dash


On your mark, get set, Go Bobcats! Lace up your sneakers for the annual Bobcat Dash 5k as part of On The Green Weekend 2017.

On The Green Weekend is OHIO’s annual spring Homecoming hosted by the OHIO Alumni Association. The weekend will take place May 17-21 and feature activities for the entire OHIO community, alumni and their families.

The Bobcat Dash 5k will take place at 8 a.m. Saturday, May 20 at Pepsi Tailgreat Park. Participants have the option of either walking or running the 5k, which will follow the OHIO bike path course along the river.

“The run will allow participants to see campus from a different point of view,” said Tyler Gagai, assistant director of external relations for the OHIO Alumni Association. “It will be a lovely run on a spring morning where runners can take in the view of the Hocking River.”

The cost to run or walk is $20, which includes a Bobcat Dash T-shirt and a pair of Bobcat Dash funky socks. Registration closes May 3, so register here today.

“The event is not just open to alumni,” Gagai said. “We hope Athens community members get involved as well.”
