Annual Bash the Bluffs 5k

Description of the event


Thank you for your continued support of Bash the Bluffs. In an effort to follow guidelines put forth by Governor Polis and UCCS Chancellor Reddy, Bash the Bluffs will be suspended until a later date. We will update this page with a new date as we reevaluate programs in this rapidly changing situation.

Campus Recreation will host the 18th annual Bash the Bluffs 5K run/walk in 2020. 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.


For the 2020 race year we are continuing our partnership with Team Red, White and Blue (TRWB) and the Army ROTC, whose mission closely aligns with our Bash The Bluffs 5k. In Remembrance of Dr. Burke and the many veterans of our community, we run together for a common cause.
