We’re bringing fun to your run in our first Color Me Coug 5K! Run, jog or walk your way through a 5K that includes color stations, places where we’ll send a rainbow of colored cornstarch into your path. Start in your Color Me Coug white t-shirt and finish wearing a vibrantly colored masterpiece! This run is untimed, so no worries about how fast your mile pace is - we win because we have fun when we run. For more information please visit our Color Me Coug registration page.
