Run With a Researcher returns to campus each month

Runners at the UO

Starting this Saturday, Oct. 1, the UO will offer the chance for people to awaken their minds and their bodies with Run with a Researcher. The monthly runs and walks are a different way to learn about the cutting-edge research that goes on at the UO in a casual setting.

The flat 4.5-mile runs and 3.1-mile walks start at 9 a.m. at the EMU “O” desk (guest services). All paces are welcome, and the first 50 participants will receive a free “Throw Your O” T-shirt. The runs and walks will continue on the first Saturday of each month.

More than 400 people learned about the innovation, creativity and impact of UO research at Run with a Researcher during the Olympic Trials. The program was such a success that researchers and attendees requested the program continue during the academic year.
