APSU to host 2nd annual Govs Color Run

Last September, several dozens of otherwise sane and reasonable Austin Peay State University students closed their eyes and intentionally ran through clouds of non-toxic colored starch. When they emerged from the haze, their hair was green or red, their skin was blue and their clothes were covered in splotches of yellow, purple, mint,and orange among other colors. And, more importantly, to a person, all of them were smiling.

The students, along with community members, were participating in the APSU Alumni Relations Office’s inaugural Gov “Color” Run – a one-mile run around campus through cloudbursts of color. The success of last year’s event has prompted the Alumni Office to do it again, with this year’s run scheduled for Sept. 27.

IMG_6210“This run is all about having fun,” Rylan Kean, APSU special events coordinator, said. “Color stations and surprises will be set up along the way to keep the party going.”

The race will make use of the campus’ new GOV Trails – a Tennessee Department of Health-funded project that promotes physical activity at APSU – and it will conclude at the APSU Intramural Field with a large party, featuring music and a chance to socialize.

Tickets to the event are $20 for members of the public, and anyone who signs up during the month of June will receive a 10 percent discount. Registration is available online at https://govrun2014.eventbrite.com.

Participants are encouraged to dress up in monocles, top hats, fake mustaches and prim suits with tails, honoring the APSU mascot, the Governor.

For more information, contact Kean at 931-221-7979 or keanr@apsu.edu.
