Bulldog Jog & The Butler HRC

In 2012, the Butler University Department of Recreation (housed in the Health and Recreation Complex-HRC) took responsibility for one of the University's signature events, the Bulldog Jog, a 5K run/walk that takes place on the Butler campus and surrounding area in the spring. This event was initially established 21 years ago as a part of Butler's Homecoming festivities, but because of the Bulldog Jog's increased participation, it was moved to the spring as its own event.

This year's event will take place on Saturday, March 22, 2014 on the Butler University campus and after two decades, a Dog Walk has been added and will feature Butler's famous mascot, Trip, as the Grand Marshall.
The Bulldog Jog's purpose is four-fold:

  • To raise funds for student scholarships;
  • To promote the HRC to the student body and the Indianapolis community;
  • To help raise awareness and supplies for local dog causes;
  • To offer the Indianapolis community, particularly the neighborhoods surrounding Butler University, an opportunity to participate in a University event to promote good neighborhood relations.

The Butler HRC was established in 2006 and offers many new services to students, faculty and staff, while expanding others presently available. In addition to being the main hub for Butler's Department of Recreation, the HRC also houses Counseling and Consultation Services, Health Education, and Health Services, making it a true wellness center on campus and the perfect home of the Bulldog Jog.

Since opening in 2006, over 1 million participants have enjoyed use of the HRC and staff are eager to add Bulldog Jog participants to that total.
