Bash the Bluffs 5K

April 23, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am


UCCS Campus Recreation will host the 21st annual Bash the Bluffs 5K run/walk April 23, 2022. Every spring the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs Campus Recreation Department hosts an on-campus run/walk in honor of Dr. Ed Burke, former professor of Exercise Science and renowned researcher at UCCS. Dr. Burke served as a friend and mentor to many in the Campus Recreation Department and had great influence on the University and the athletic community. While on a mountain bike ride in November 2002, he tragically passed due to a sudden heart attack.

In Remembrance of Dr. Burke and the many veterans of our community, we run together for a common cause. The Ed Burke Memorial Scholarship Endowment Fund provides merit-based scholarships for students studying exercise science at UCCS. On race day, we expect over 100 race participants, and we hope you can be part of our celebration.
