The Marshall University Campus Activities Board and Religious Studies Association are kicking off Homecoming week with the Color My College 5K.

The 5K will be on Sunday at 1 p.m., starting at the Joan C. Edwards Stadium.

The race is $40 per individual runner or $35 dollars for MU students.

The Color My College 5K will be similar to the popular Color Runs, however only green and white will be used.

After the race, attendees will be able to win prizes from Qdoba, Chipotle, Vitamin World, Planet Fitness, Applebee’s and Dick’s Sporting Goods. Disk jockey Nick Scott will perform and a Zumba “pump-up” series will be held throughout the event.

Sarah Dyke, CAB graduate assistant, said she is looking forward to the 5K and hopes to have a good turn out from the student body.

“We hope that it will be an event that a lot of people will come out to and get excited for the fun week we have planned,” Dyke said.

Aaron Dunn, president of the Religious Studies Association, also had a large part in planning this event.

“I am expecting a wonderful sense of community with Marshall University and Marshall alum.””

“I am expecting a wonderful sense of community with Marshall University and Marshall alum,” Dunn said.

Color My College will benefit the Tri-State Literacy Council. Dunn said he was happy to be supporting this charity because it is local and could help bring the community together.

Aside from the Color My College 5K, homecoming week will also consist of events such as Penny Wars, So MU Think You Can Dance, the Thundering Pomp Competition, Canned Food Art, the Unity Walk, Meet the Court, a parade and more.
