2nd Annual Colonel 5k

Thibodaux, LA

The perfect place to set a Personal Record (PR)! The Colonel 5k course and event is designed for all levels of runners to reach a personal best. The course was designed by Nicholls Track & Field and Cross Country to take the community on a tour of campus and the recreation path where they run fast intervals. We hope you enjoy being cheered on by Colonel Track & Field and Cross Country while cruising this fast, flat course to a new PR!

The Colonel 5k features a flat/fast course all on Nicholls State University's beautiful campus. Come support Colonel Track & Field and Cross Country and run the streets and recreational path Nicholls Alumni remember and current students traverse daily.
