Details on Husky Run, and Other Events Next Week

by Categorized: UConn men's basketball

UConn has put out the details for the Husky Run – it’s the same as usual, except it will be on a Thursday this year – next Thursday Oct. 11.

It’s open to the public, and the 3.4-mile run begins and ends at Gampel Pavilion. You can register outside Gampel beginning at 1:30 p.m., the race begins at 2:30. Runners get a free T-shirt, with food available after the race, and the winner gets a Nike sweatsuit.

Next week is going to be a busy one as Kevin Ollie begins his first season. The players have this weekend off to re-charge for the start of practice.

To review:

Ollie and Geno Auriemma will speak at the Jimmy V Classic dinner in New York on Wednesday night.

And, finally, the first official practice on Saturday.
