Spotlight on: THEALUMRUN

THEALUMRUN is a national road race series with its inaugural event in Washington, DC. The race weekend harnesses the passion and pride of college and university alumni, students and fans to create a multi-day active lifestyle event featuring a multi-distance road race, hospitality and entertainment experience, party, and showcases a charitable appeal to registrants to make a donation to support student scholarships or their school’s or chapter’s annual fund.

Alumni chapters with student scholarship funds may enter into agreements with THEALUMRUN for donations made by their alumni to go to the chapter’s scholarship fund, which must have a 501(c)(3) and agree to provide the donor with a receipt. In the absence of an appropriate arrangement with the alumni chapter, THEALUMRUN will deliver donations to the school’s annual fund. Contact by March 18 for more information

The registration process for THEALUMRUN features a direct charitable appeal to each registrant asking if they would like to contribute to their school. Registrants will are encouraged to share their plans to participate and contribute via social media. Check the search box to see if your school or your chapter has a team. If so, feel free to join it. If not, you can easily create your own team. You don’t have to be on a team in order to enjoy THEALUMRUN!

THEALUMRUN Weekend begins with a Reunion-style Kickoff Party at Mission Dupont, featuring food, an open bar, a private gathering area and TVs for watching the basketball games. Grab a drink and pick up your race packet. Hang out with friends, even if you aren’t running on Race Day. Reconnect with old friends, make new ones and start the weekend off right!

THEALUMRUN offers registrants the option of participating in a group community service activity in partnership with the Capital Area Food Bank and Smithfield Foods.
