Race Information

Every year the Columbus State Staff Advisory Council hosts the Cougar 5K Challenge to raise money for student book scholarships. The cost of books is a significant and often overlooked barrier to finishing college. While Columbus State makes every effort to provide students with 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 the Council to endow book scholarships so students can “cross the finish line” of their education.

Run Pick of the Month - Ragnar Trail Appalachians

 8 Teammates. 120 Miles. 3 Loops. Camping. August 9 - 10, 2024.

In this multi-day event, each team will collectively run 120-ish miles. You’ll run day, night, and day again, sleeping in a temporary tent city known as the Ragnar Village.

When you’re not racking up miles for your team or attempting to catch some ZZZs in your tent, you’ll be hanging out in the Ragnar Village, roasting s’mores, winning partner prizes and partying with other runners.

At the Appalachians event teammates will take turns running on 3 tree lined trails full of dense Appalachian forest. Expect rolling hills with serious elevation, and giant ferns reminiscent of Jurassic Park...... minus the dinosaurs!
