CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Around dusk on Sept. 28, the Austin Peay State University campus will be filled with colorful characters – literally. That night, the APSU Alumni Relations Office will host its inaugural Gov Run – a one-mile run around campus where participants in bright clothing are splashed with non-toxic colored starch.
“This run is all about having fun,” Rylan Kean, APSU special events coordinator, said. “Color stations and surprises will be set up along the way to keep the party going.”
The race will make use of the campus’ new GOV Trails – a Tennessee Department of Health-funded project that promotes physical activity at APSU – and it will conclude at the Morgan University Center plaza with a large party, featuring music and a chance to socialize.
Tickets to the event are $20 for members of the public and free for the first 500 APSU students to preregister. Registration is available online at http://thegovrun2013.eventbrite.com/. Participants are encouraged to dress up in monocles, top hats, fake mustaches and prim suits with tails, honoring the APSU mascot, the Governor.
