Get out your running gear, your rain gear, and maybe even your Halloween gear. Oregon State University is holding the fourth annual Be Well Walk & Run on Oct. 11 in the Memorial Union Quad. The event is free and open to everyone.

This year’s event includes a five-kilometer running course as well as a one-mile walking course (5k Map / 1-Mile Map). The scenic route will wind participants throughout OSU’s campus, highlighting picturesque buildings and spaces. Costumes are encouraged.

The event will feature activity stations in the Memorial Union Quad to engage participants in learning about the Healthy Campus Initiative, including physical activity, stress management, nutrition and a smoke-free campus.

Participants can register as individuals or as part of a group.  Early registrants will receive a free 2013 Be Well Walk & Run t-shirt. To register, go to http://oregonstate.edu/recsports/bewellwalkrun. The run starts at 3:30 p.m. in the quad, check in begins at 3 p.m.
