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-winning 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.

The 2016 races will utilize the alternate course, finishing in the Sheakley football practice stadium rather than Nippert Stadium due to FC Cincinnati’s home playoff game at 4 p.m. on October 2. *(See September 20,2016 note to Bearcats Dash & Bash Supporters).

After the Bash, celebrate your success at the Bash, which will be held in the Sheakley football practice stadium. Music will be provided by Dueling DJs—DJ Clear v. Scott Ruckus with Special Guest Drummer KMF.  All Dash & Bash participants will be able to exchange tear-away tickets on their race bibs for a FREE Skyline Cheese Coney, Domino’s pizza, a variety of beer (Bud Light, Breckenridge Vanilla Porter, and Rivertown Roebling) and Pepsi products! Additional refreshments will be available for purchase for friends, family, and anyone else in attendance.

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!
