The second edition of The Cougar Run was back and better than ever, offering a 5-kilometer course around Bishop’s University (BU) campus where participants were periodically immersed in a rainbow of coloured powder. This event welcomed participants of all ages and fitness levels to join in the fun, whether they chose to run, jog, walk, or dance through the course.

On May 11, the Cougar Run provided more than just an exciting course. Families could enjoy a lively atmosphere with music and a bouncy house for children. The first 150 participants to sign up received a pair of Cougar Run sunglasses and a Cougar Run t-shirt.

The event was a fundraiser supporting the Champlain-Lennoxville Foundation, with all proceeds directed toward athletic excellence (participation in national championships) and the General Fund, which aids in student success and well-being.
