52nd Annual Rose Run returns to Jackson College campus!

May 27, 2022

Jackson College will welcome the 52nd running of the Rose Run back to campus on Saturday, June 11!

Runners and walkers are invited to participate in a variety of events, with proceeds benefitting the Jackson College cross country programs. “We’re back on campus! Last year was at Ella Sharp Park, and before that we were virtual, but now things are getting back to normal,” said Jackson College Cross Country Coach Serafin Llerena. He assists race coordinators Jeff and Tina Beagle with the race, with students as volunteers. “We’ll have our team members for this next year helping. This is one of our huge fundraisers; it pays for our nationals trip.”

Events will start near the Jets Hangar and include a 10K run, 5K run, 5K walk, ½ mile kids run, and virtual 10K and 5K runs.  Registration cost is $25 per event, or $30 on June 11.  Register at https://runsignup.com/Race/MI/Jackson/OrthopaedicRehabSpecialistsPCRoseRun. Early packet pickup is set for Thursday, June 9, and Friday, June 10, from 4-7 p.m. in the Jets Hangar. Races start at 8 a.m. All participants will receive a race T-shirt, and medals will be awarded for the top three finishers in each age group, and the grand masters winners will get a gift certificate from Playmakers.

Thank you to race series sponsors, Orthopaedic Rehab Specialists.
