Color Ran through campus



Editor-in-Chief, News Editor

Early in the morning on Sept. 20, students, professors and community members trickled onto campus to check in for Piedmont’s first-ever Color Run 5K race. By 9:15 a.m., sneakers pounded against the pavement: the race had officially begun. 

Participants moved throughout the campus, stopping by the amphitheater parking lot to be sprayed with color. 

Once everyone had completed the race, a raffle was held where all those who participated had a chance to win water bottles and t-shirts. 

The event also served as the launch event for League of Lions, a points system that rewards students for being active on campus. 

“We wanted to kind of start with a bang,” said Director of Residential Education Mark Jestel.
