Run the World 5K is a race organized by the colleges within Kent State University and the Office of Global Education to raise money for study abroad student scholarships. We were able to give away eight, $1000 scholarships after the inaugural race in 2015.
The second annual Run the World 5K will take place Saturday, September 10, 2016 at 8:30 a.m. The start and finish line will be at Risman Plaza (in between the Student Center and University Library) at Kent State.
Kent State Students: Registration for the race will also include you in a chance to win one of multiple $1,000 scholarships toward a study abroad experience. The study abroad program must be a Kent State or exchange program. See the Office of Global Education to determine if your interested program qualifies. Students must register for the race to be qualified.
