The Gophers women’s cross country team is hosting Jack’s run on Saturday at Les Bolstad golf course near the St. Paul campus.

The odd thing is it’s not just a meet for the athletes.

Jack’s run is an open meet meaning anyone who wants to attend can go and run. In years past the race has included parents, students, and varsity runners alike.

It’s held at Minnesota’s home course, the golf course at Les Bolstad in Flacon Heights, several blocks from the St. Paul campus. The race starts at 10 a.m.
