The GOV 'Color' Run

A campus tradition that gives you a new reason to run.


Join us as we celebrate the 3rd annual Gov ‘Color’ Run on Saturday, September 26th, 2015. This year, not only are you running for the Gov, you’re now running for a reason – a new scholarship program for all current APSU students.

You Asked. We Listened.

Longer Run. More Paint. Bigger Surprises.

Don’t miss the end – you’ll want to be there.
