Homecoming Scholarship 5K Run- Gym Participants
Saturday, October 26, 2013 from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM (CDT)
High on a windy hill, overlooking the confluence of the Red and Cumberland rivers, stands Emerald Hill, home of Austin Peay State University’s National Alumni Association and the start and finish for the Homecoming Scholarship 5K Run. Listed in the National Register of Historic Sites, the history of this antebellum mansion is as rich as the traditions of the University. As runners come to conquer Emerald Hill they will embark on a journey of accomplishment as they endure the winding course to the top. Truly, the name given by Gustavus A. Henry was appropriate. It was and still is an Emerald Hill.
This year we are also incorporating our 1st Annual Gym Competition. The gym that has the highest number of members sign up to participate in the 5K Run will win a set of kettlebells. We hope that your gym will become part of our tradition, where it’s members can say, “I Conquered Emerald Hill.”
Let the race begin.
Because of your support for the APSU Homecoming Scholarship 5K Run, you are providing possibilities for our students. Proceeds from the 5K Run benefit APSU student-athletes. Thank you!
