Your participation in the 2020 Jim Dunn Memorial Run supports continued education & recreation in our community:

  • The Jim Dunn Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a handful of West Virginian high school students continuing their collegiate education and running careers at universities across the nation. 
  • A yearly endowment to SteppingStones, who provides year-round recreation for children and adults with disabilities

Due to unprecedented times, registrants for the 2020 Run will run their 5-mile route remotely during the week of July 9th- July 16th, posting their results to either the Jim Dunn Run Facebook Page  or emailing us results at our Contact Page for tracking, updates, & awards.

A huge thanks to our sponsors, volunteers and patrons who believe in our mission. There are many ways to help us empower others through education, sport, and recreation in memory of our friend Jim Dunn. Join us!


How do I register?: Here on the site. You’ll receive your T-Shirt & some coupons the mail. Follow Jim Dunn Run on Facebook to track results and receive more updates. Final Registration due July 15th at Noon.

When do I run?: July 9th- July 16th. Final uploads of results due on July 16th at Noon.

Where do I run?: Though you can run & submit 5 miles from any well-lit course near your home, our typical Jim Dunn Run course in Wharf District Morgantown will be open and mile-marked. Beginning at Wharf Parking Garage, along the Rail Trails, and into WVU Arboretum before turning to return to Wharf District. 

How do I post my results?:  OPTION 1: Post a Screenshot from your fitness tracker or running app onto the Jim Dunn Run Facebook page wall and we’ll do the rest. Post with your gender and age so we can group the results to share at Noon on July 17th. OPTION 2: Email us at the Contact Page your age, gender, and time. We’re honoring your word, don’t post world-record paces.
