The event is an official, chip-timed race that will be held on Saturday, October 8 at 8:30 a.m. on the UC Blue Ash College campus and is open to the community. Proceeds will again go toward scholarships for deserving UC Blue Ash students. 

Participants can run, walk or choose to ’Sleep in for Scholarships’ and still show their support. Registration fees for non-students are $25 in advance (including the ‘sleep in’ option) or $30 on the day of the race. The cost for all students (not just UC Blue Ash) is $15 in advance or $20 on the day of the race.
