The most important contribution SAC makes to the College is fostering a community where employees are invested and know they are valued. Each year, SAC sponsors events that bring staff members together in service, education and celebration.
The Columbus State Cougar 5K Challenge is going virtual!
We are excited to announce that you will still be able to participate in this year’s 5K by running or walking the race on your own time and in your own space.
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. Due to this being a virtual race where there will be inconsistencies in everyone's chosen course, possible weather, tracking devices etc., no placement medals will be awarded this year. Instead, everyone will receive a participation medal, a race shirt and prizes will be awarded to the team with the most members, the team that raises the most donation money, and the team that has the most participants submit their race time.
In lieu of a packet pick-up, we’ll be handing out swag bags with each participant’s t-shirt and medal sometime after we’re able to return to campus. If you’re not on campus, we will make plans to get you your swag bag another way.
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!
