Get your semester off to a fast start! Join fellow graduate students, faculty and staff for the Graduate School Dash and Bash hosted by the Graduate School at UW–Madison.
Whether you plan to sprint to degree completion, handcycle the route, take a scholarly stroll, or join the “Bash” activities just for the fun of it, all are welcome and encouraged to participate in a variety of ways. You will meet new people, see our beautiful campus, and come away with a free giveaway. And the best part is, however you participate, you’ll get a diploma at the finish line.
All are encouraged to participate in this free event – new and current graduate students, faculty, staff and family members.
Set your goal for 5.07 miles for the Doctoral Derby (no, you don’t have to be in a PhD program to participate), or for 1.94 miles for the Master’s Mile (for those who need to “graduate” early). Race distances are based on approximate average time to degree.
Both routes start and end on Library Mall (located just west of Memorial Library), follow portions of the Lakeshore Path and nearby streets, and are wheelchair and stroller accessible.
