The True Blue 5K is all about showing your TRUE BLUE pride!  This race is a truly unique experience that takes runners through Paulson Stadium. Kick off homecoming right and come run, jog ,or walk your way through our beautiful campus and let your True Blue pride shine! We had so much fun seeing the True Blue pride from Georgia to California and all the way to Japan that we decided to offer Virtual race registration again for those eagles that cannot participate in Statesboro!

The 2023 race is sponsored by The Abbie DeLoach Foundation. 

While at GSU, Abbie joined the Kappa Delta Sorority, a legacy she shared with her mother. Her leadership skills shined amongst this lovely group of women as she was the Recommendation Chairman, a member of the homecoming step team, she played many intramural sports, and was on the championship intramural basketball team for Kappa Delta. She was a Junior in the Nursing program when her and 4 fellow nursing students were killed on their way to their last clinical rotation in Savannah. We hope you will join us in honoring Abbie’s legacy at the True Blue 5K. For more information on the Abbie Deloach Foundation please visit our Facebook page:
