Representatives from each undergraduate class year will race around the 1.3-mile “Brain Loop” this Saturday in Run the Brain 2020. Racers (student runners only) will run solo in a staggered fashion to follow safety guidelines. The class with the fastest runners will get their year listed on a perpetual trophy. Whether you’re a runner or just want to cheer on a friend or classmate, it’s bound to be fun.

The exhibit, on display through September at The Bundy Museum of History & Art, is presented by the Crime Victims Assistance Center and 20:1 Prevention Programs, a nationally recognized peer education program that provides interpersonal violence prevention and bystander intervention programming to students at Binghamton University.
