It is that time of year again! Homecoming is vastly approaching. Tailgating and cheering our team on to victory against Western Carolina! Among the many events that will take place during homecoming week, there will be a True Blue 5K race. What better way to begin your Saturday morning before the game than showing your true blue pride!
True Blue 5K will take place Saturday, November 9 at 7:30 am. This race is for anyone. Rather you want to run, jog, or leisurely walk your dog.
Stephen Harvey, senior exercise science major, will be participating in True Blue 5K for the third time.
He says, “I love racing this event because of the excellent course that takes you through Georgia Southern’s Campus. Also, Freedom, the Southern Pride marching band, and GUS are just a few GSU traditions you will find throughout the route.”
Pre registration has begun and ends on October 25. Pre registration is $10 for students and includes a True Blue 5K t-shirt.
Need suggestions to get in shape for the race? Stephen suggests students running with friends or a group. Don’t have anyone to run with? Join GSU Running club, Statesboro Pacers, and Swim.Bike.Run Running Group.”
