The Colorado State University Veterans' Day 5K is an annual, non-profit fund raiser designed to raise money for the CSU Veterans Scholarship fund. This scholarship is awarded to veterans who were honorably or medically discharged and are living with disabilities related to their military experience.
The race is also to honor a fallen member of our armed forces who had a personal connection to Colorado State University.
Over the years, the run has attracted hundreds of participants: CSU alumni, veterans, children running and in strollers, experienced runners, and everyone in between. Each year, race participation grows steadily, allowing us to help a disabled student veteran achieve the goals of successfully completing higher education. Join us and our community members in honoring a fallen hero as well as helping our student veterans.
The race course is flat and entirely paved and marked. The route circles around The Oval, a CSU landmark, and across the campus, highlighting much of CSU's main campus.
