Cost to participate is $500 per team. One person from each team must complete the registration for all team members. To guarantee your team receives their desired t-shirt sizes, registration must be completed before June 12.

APSU continues to be recognized for its dedication to veterans and active duty military students. The state’s largest provider of higher education to soldiers, veterans and their families, Austin Peay was named in 2013 and 2014 a “Military Friendly School,” and is recognized as the state’s best university for vets by the Military Times.

Earlier this year, G.I. Jobs magazine named the university to its 2015 Military Friendly Schools list. In August, the federal government applauded APSU for being the only school in Tennessee to implement the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ “8 Keys to Success,” an initiative seeking to help veterans succeed on campus.
