The perfect place to set a Personal Record (PR)! The Colonel 5k course and event is designed for all levels of runners and walkers to reach a personal best. The course was designed by Nicholls Track & Field and Cross Country to take the community on a tour of campus and the recreation path where they run fast intervals. We hope you enjoy being cheered on by Colonel Track & Field and Cross Country while cruising this fast, flat course to a new PR!

This year we are partnering with SPA to offer free entry for all Nicholls State University Students and some color pop* to our run! *SPA will have several colored powder stations that will "pop" throughout the race

Prize packages will be awarded to top Male & Female overall finishers and top Male & Female masters finishers. Male and Female age group winners will be recognized with medals.
