The Tradition

Are you ready for a Buckeye tradition like no other?

The Buck-I-Run is a 5k glow run on Ohio State’s campus.

Being a Buckeye means being part of a history of excellence and rich tradition. You have the opportunity to participate in a new Buckeye tradition, the Buck-I-Run. This 5k glow run will bring students and alumni alike to Ohio State’s campus for a run like no other. The Buck-I-Run will take you past the iconic places that make the Columbus campus beautiful. Celebrate Ohio State tradition and pride with Buckeyes past and present!

The Buck-I-Run is presented by The Ohio State University Alumni Association and The Student-Alumni Council. These groups are dedicated to keeping Buckeyes connected both on campus and beyond, after graduation. OSUAA and SAC aim to promote community and a sense of pride in our alma mater.
