Columbus State Cougar 5k Challenge
Due to the Covid-19 virus and the Governor’s request to limit large gatherings, The Columbus State Cougar Challenge will now be a virtual run/walk. We would love to host a physical race where we can all be together and enjoy the outdoors. However, as we all know, this is not possible at this time. Please support this event and we will look forward to getting together in 2021.
Instead of running together on the Delaware Campus, each participant can run or walk the 5K wherever and whenever they choose between Saturday, May 2 and Sunday, May 10. We’ll send a follow-up email closer to the start date to explain how to submit your race time to qualify for some awesome prizes.
There’s still time to get your friends and family to sign up and compete in the virtual Cougar 5K too! Encourage others to stay active by inviting them to race against you from a distance. The registration fee will stay at a flat rate and not increase in April as previously planned.
We hope you’ll join us virtually this year so we can stay healthy and continue supporting our students!
The Columbus State Cougar Challenge is hosting the 10th annual 5k run/walk event sponsored by the Staff Advisory Council of Columbus State. The Cougar 5k Challenge supports book scholarships for Columbus State Community College students. Each year, the Staff Advisory Council of Columbus State has been able to increase the total number of book sponsorships provided to CSCC students from race registrations like yours.
The cost of books is a significant and often overlooked cost of attending college. While every effort is made to provide students affordable options, sometimes there is no way around the costs of up to date, high-quality textbooks. Your participation and support of this race will help us to endow book scholarships so all students can “cross the finish line” of their education.
