Basketball team starts new tradition

The GW men’s basketball team is starting a new annual tradition to go along with its new faces. The team will run four laps around the Reflecting Pool on the National Mall Oct. 10 at noon.

The first annual “Colonials Run” will mark the end of pre-season training before the team starts official practice at “Midnight Madness” Friday night.

The run is about three miles, and is open to GW students, faculty, staff, and members of the community. The first 50 runners to join the Colonials will be given free T-shirts.

Runners are asked to meet at the Smith Center at 11:45 a.m. on Wednesday. From there, the group will walk to the Reflecting Pool and start the inaugural run.
