About This Activity

Each year, the Panola College Student Government Association seeks to foster the relationship of the college with the local community with this 5k fun run. Every aspect of this event is planned and conducted by Panola College students.  The funds raised from the event are dedicated to the Panola College Foundation Endowment, which supports and promotes the mission of the college by organizing community programs, establishing student scholarships, and providing instructional materials.  

The theme for this year's 5k is "Running with the Herd." We strongly encourage our participants to create teams of 7 runners. These runners can be ages 11 and over. Each team must have a team name. In the spirit of fun, we encourage all teams to dress according to their team name. An award for best "dressed" team as well as for the team with the best overall combined time will be given.  We will also give out ancillary event prizes. 

Participants may still register individually if they do not wish to run as a member of a team.  The run will take place on April 16th, at 9 am in front of the Gullette Building, located on Bird Drive. The route will take participants through the peaceful neighborhood near the college. The event will be timed by TTR Timing. There will be light snacks, a live band, and plenty of fellowship for everyone.
