SSU’s Spring 2020 Bear Run scheduled for Saturday, April 4 was postponed due to the coronavirus.

We appreciate your support of Shawnee State and to make up for this event's postponement we've added a Weekend of Welcome 5K Run in its place to take place on Saturday, August 22. Your race registration will automatically be moved to the new date.

If you can't participate in the Weekend of Welcome 5K Run or would rather move your race registration to the Fall Bear Run scheduled for Wednesday, September 16 at 6 pm, please email Kara Stump, Bear Run Coordinator, at If we don't hear from you before then, we will see you on August 22!
