There was a good turnout of participants for the Black and Gold Run despite the weather. People from all over Missouri gathered to participate, and some planned to attend the football game afterward.

The course was two miles long, and powdered nontoxic paint made of cornstarch was thrown on the runners at two designated spots. One of them was on Hitt Street, and the other was close to the Tiger Plaza.

Participants run on Ninth Street on Saturday morning. Many runners arrived dressed in black, and they remained upbeat throughout the race.
