With practice starting two weeks earlier, UConn has pushed up the annual race around the campus to match. The Husky Run will be next Wednesday at 2:30 p.m.. Registration starts at 1:30 outside Gampel Pavilion, which is the start and finish point of the 3.4-mile run around the campus.
You know the drill. Runners get a free T-shirt and free food after the race. The first-place finisher gets a full Nike jump suit.
