The Cougar Run

A 5K road race has been a part of BYU Homecoming for more than 30 years. In 2003, the BYU Track and Field program assumed responsibility for the race, and it became the Cougar Run. The 2019 Cougar Run will be held on October 19, at the Clarence Robison Track and Field Complex on Canyon Road south of Lavell Edwards Stadium.
