CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – This year’s Austin Peay State University Homecoming theme, Gov Strong, will take on an added meaning on Nov. 1 as University alumni and supporters push themselves to complete the 2014 Scholarship 5K Run.

The race, through a USA Track and Field certified course, will begin at 9 a.m. that Saturday at the Pace Alumni Center at Emerald Hill.  The challenge that day will come toward the end of the run, when tired participants tackle the steep hill in front of the alumni center. This final stretch has led runners to say with pride that they “conquered Emerald Hill.”

Registration for the race begins at 7:30 a.m. that Saturday, and cash awards and medals will be presented to the top finishers at 10:30 a.m. Registration information and costs are available online at http://www.active.com/clarksville-tn/running/apsu-scholarship-5k-run-2014. APSU students and military personnel are eligible for discounted rates with a valid I.D. Participants also can save money on registration by signing up for the race before Oct. 29. Proceeds from this event help fund scholarships for deserving APSU students.
