The University of Memphis Alumni Association Young Alumni Committee will host the second annual First Tennessee True Blue 5k race on Friday, November 21, at 7 p.m. on the University’s main campus. Proceeds from the race will support the work of the Young Alumni Committee and its commitment to building a stronger University and a stronger Memphis. 

Students, alumni, and all Tiger supporters are invited to participate in the race.  A pep rally before the race will feature the Mighty Sound of the South band and the U of M cheerleaders.

Runners and walkers will enjoy a course that winds through the U of M campus, past such sites as the Presidential Rose Garden, clock tower, student plaza, and FedEx Institute of Technology.  The race will end at the Alumni Mall, where a post-race party will include awards, refreshments, and music from the Soul Outsiders.  The celebration will continue November 22 as the Tigers take on C-USA football rival Central Florida.

Racers may register online at www.trueblue5k.racesonline.com  or in person at the University of Memphis Alumni Center, 633 Normal near Spottswood.  The registration fee is $25. All racers will receive an official True Blue 5k t-shirt.

First Tennessee Bank is the True Blue title sponsor. Other race sponsors include Memphis Sport magazine, R.P. Tracks, ATC Fitness, Back Yard Burgers, Mahaffey Tent & Party Rentals, Corky’s, Smoothie King, and Measures of Joy Catering. 

The University of Memphis Alumni Association is a non-profit organization with the primary purpose of engaging alumni, former students, and friends in three areas: advocating the ideals of the University, advancing its welfare, and fostering life-long relationships with the institution.
