The East Carolina Alumni Association presents the sixth annual Pirate Alumni Road Race and Fun Run! Join fellow alumni and friends as we race to raise funds for ECU scholarships. Runners of all ages will enjoy the 5K road race or one-mile fun run.
About Our Race
All proceeds from the Pirate Alumni Road Race and Fun Run benefit the East Carolina Alumni Association Scholarship Program. Every spring, the Alumni Association awards around 20 scholarships of either $1,000 or $2,500 to selected undergraduates to be used in the following academic year. Since the program's founding in 2005, the Alumni Association has awarded 179 scholarships (including this year's 2013-2014 scholarship recipients) totaling $251,000. Last year’s race raised more than $5,000 for the Alumni Scholarship Program.
