New students are invited to join President Scott Bierman for a leisurely two-mile run on Wednesday morning (Aug. 24) at 7:15 a.m. The runner-in-chief is using the opportunity to personally meet members of the class of 2015 and introduce them to one of his favorite short runs along Beloit’s riverfront.
Faculty and staff in the midst of training to defend the Shoehorn Trophy at the Oct. 1 Olde English Classic are also invited to attend and meet the class.
What you should know:
- Runners will meet on the Middle College steps, just outside the admissions office prior to the 7:15 a.m. start.
- The course will wind through campus heading north toward the river. The runners will circle the pond at Riverside Park before heading back to the starting point.
- Breakfast will be served in Commons until 9:30 on Wednesday morning. (Runners need not miss it!)
