Joggin’ with Josh postponed until Wednesday, Sept. 4

Joggin’ with Josh has been postponed. Originally scheduled for Thursday, Aug. 29, the event has been rescheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 4.

Joshua Wynne, vice president for health affairs and dean of the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, postponed the event because the expected high heat index and possible storms tomorrow would pose a threat to the health, well-being, and safety of participants.

Although the free and fun event has been delayed, it is not done.

Dean Wynne invites the community and all students, faculty, and staff at the School and the University to advocate healthful lifestyles by joining him for Joggin' with Josh, an informal 5K or 10K walk, jog, or run on Wednesday, Sept. 4. This is a free public event. Everyone is welcome to participate, so please bring your family and friends.

A sign-up table will be in the School of Medicine and Health Sciences' main lobby at the east entrance to the School, which faces Columbia Road; sign-up and T-shirt pickup starts at 4 p.m. The dean will speak to the group before the event, which starts at 4:30 p.m. To get a head start on your fellow participants, please complete the sign-up form available at and bring it with you to the SMHS. Forms will also be available in the main lobby before the event.

Walkers, joggers and runners are asked to gather on the front steps before taking off on a route along the outskirts of campus. A water station will be located at the halfway point of the 5K, and water and healthful snacks will be available after the event.
