The GW men’s basketball team will mark the end of preseason training Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. when the team takes a 1.5-mile jog with fans around the Lincoln Memorial and reflecting pool.

Interested students, faculty, staff and community members will have the opportunity to run with the team, meet players and coaches and discuss the upcoming season.

Runners are asked to meet at the Smith Center at 2:15 p.m. on Wednesday. The group will then walk to the east end of Memorial Bridge to begin the run.

“Colonials Run” was also held in 2001 before head coach Karl Hobbs’ first year with GW. Both the men’s and women’s basketball teams begin official practices on Saturday, Oct. 18.
