Sign up for the 6th annual B Well 5K Run/Walk is now available!  The event will take place on Friday, June 19th at 8:30am.  To sign up, please fill out the form by clicking on this link.

The run/walk will begin on the Alumni Walk side of Commons and the route will wind through our picturesque campus.  Check out the map here.  This event is intended to be inclusive for both walkers and runners and is a great way to celebrate the culture of wellness that we have built here at Bates.

If you’d rather not partake in the run / walk, please come out and support your colleagues by cheering along the course.  We also need several volunteers to man the course.  If you’d like to volunteer, please contact Lori Ouellette (louellet@bates.edu).
