About the Race

Please join us for our annual spring race which will take place Saturday, Apr. 9, 2022. The race, named after Kent State University's unofficial mascot, will be available for anyone to participate in, whether you are at home or on campus. The course is a loop course beginning and ending near the entrance to the Student Recreation and Wellness Center on the Kent State University Campus. If you are in Kent and would like to run the actual course, it will be marked and will take you through the campus via the Esplanade and Portage Bike and Hike Trail. A few small hills adds to the runners experience so be on the lookout for the infamous black squirrels. 

Cancellation policy:
