The True Blue 5k is quickly approaching and I can’t think of a better way to show your school spirit other than to dress as true blue as you possibly can and run through our beautiful campus the morning of our homecoming football game against Howard University.
This race is for anyone! You can be a seasoned runner, new to the sport, or just interested in taking your dog on a leisurely walk (as long as you pick up after them!)
CRI hosts many different races throughout the year, but none of the others can compare to the True Blue 5k. A lot of student organizations come out to get all of the participants pumped up and energized for the race!
Last year, Dr. Keel kicked off the race with us and showed his True Blue spirit! The GSU cheerleaders, GUS, CRI’s Blue Man and the pep band also made an appearance to add extra excitement to the race.
Here’s something else to consider- everyone knows that the RAC parking lot gets pretty packed with tailgaters on game days. Since parking is on a first come first serve basis, you’ll already have a great spot from your early morning run, which lets you jump right into tailgating after the race!
Students! You can register online at www.georgiasouthern.edu/cri or at Member Services in the RAC. Preregistration just ended, but regular registration is still only $15 until the day before the race. This registration fee also includes an awesome True Blue 5k t-shirt. If you decide to register the day of the race, the cost will increase to $20. Take advantage of the student prices and register early!
Also, Swim.Bike.Run of Statesboro is donating a brand new pair of running shoes for the overall male and female winners. You don’t want to miss out on an opportunity for a new pair of shoes!
With True Blue spirit,
