APSU hosting third Gov Color Run Sept. 26

             CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – In September 2013, Austin Peay State University hosted its inaugural Gov “Color” Run, a one-mile race around campus through cloudbursts of color. The event, which continued last year, was originally marketed as a way of bringing together APSU students and community members for an affordable color run.

                At 6 p.m. on Sept. 26, the color run will return to campus, but the APSU Alumni Relations Office is now using the popular event to help deserving students earn a college education. This year, participants will see more paint, a longer race path and bigger surprises, while also helping to fund scholarships.

                Tickets for the color run are $20 until Aug. 31, and $25 after that date. The event is open to the community, and children five and under run free. Registration is available online at https://govrun2015.eventbrite.com.
