Join a tradition in the making at the Inaugural Bearcats Dash & Bash 18.19K and 5K on October 2, 2016!

The 5K run/walk winds through UC’s award-wining uptown campus, which features works by some of the world’s most renowned architects.  The 5K begins at 9:00 a.m.

The 18.19K, which celebrates the year of UC’s founding, takes runners through campus, and then out beyond through Clifton’s historic Gaslight District and beautiful Mt. Storm park.  The 18.19K begins at 8:30 a.m.

Both races finish in historic, newly renovated Nippert Stadium!*

*If FC Cincinnati has a home playoff game, the finish of both courses will be rerouted to an alternate location on campus in the footprint of Nippert Stadium.

After the Dash, celebrate your success at the Bash, which will be held around the concourse of Nippert Stadium.  Music will be provided by Dueling DJs—DJ Clear v. Scott Ruckus with Special Guess Drummer KMF.  All Dash & Bash participants will be able to exchange tear-away tickets on their race bibs for a FREE Skyline cheese coney, beer, and more!  Additional refreshments will be available for purchase.

All proceeds benefit UC’s Athletic scholarship fund and the Ohio Innocence Project at UC’s College of Law.

Come support the Bearcats and see why UC’s campus has landed on so many “Top 10” lists as one of the most beautiful campuses in the world!
