2019 Bearister Run with Special Guest Starter: Coach Carmelita Jeter!

The Bearister Run is raising the bar with this year’s race.  Our special guest starter is the “Fastest Woman Alive," three-time Olympic medalist Carmelita Jeter.  Coach Jet and MSU women's track and field and cross-country athletes will cheer on our runners. Bring your firm, friends and family and start your homecoming morning right. Proceeds will benefit the MSU Track and Field and Cross Country and the Springfield Metropolitan Bar Foundation.
