CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – This October, alumni and community members can support Austin Peay State University student-athletes while also enjoying an intense three-mile run through campus by participating in the APSU Scholarship 5K Run.

The race, which is a USA Track and Field certified course, will begin at 9 a.m. on Oct. 10 at the Pace Alumni Center at Emerald Hill. Proceeds from the event will benefit APSU Cross Country and Track & Field student-athletes. Race participants will have to push themselves at the end as they run up the steep hill in front of the alumni center. This tradition has led exhausted runners to cheer that they “conquered Emerald Hill.”

Registration for the race begins at 7:30 a.m. that Saturday, and awards 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-2015. For more information on the scholarship run, contact the Alumni Relations Office, (931) 221-7979 or 1-800-264-2586 or email alumni@apsu.edu.
