The University of Memphis Young Alumni Committee will host the third annual First Tennessee True Blue 5k Friday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m. on the University’s main campus. Proceeds from the race will benefit the Alumni Association and its work to engage, connect, and advance the University’s students, alumni, and campus community, as well as the newly-established Young Alumni Committee Scholarship for graduate students.

Runners and walkers will enjoy a Memphis Runners Track Club-certified race course that winds through the U of M campus. A post-race celebration will feature food, music, and an awards ceremony.

U of M students, alumni, and all Tiger supporters are invited to participate. Racers may register online at or by calling 901-678-1333. Registration is $25 for a chip-timed race.

MRTC members, U of M Alumni Association members, students, and staff receive a $3 discount if they register by Oct. 16. An untimed fun run costs $18.

Race day registration and packet pickup will be held from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. on the lawn between Patterson and Ellington Halls on the U of M campus. Parking will be available in the Southern Avenue lot across from the registration area.

This year’s title sponsor is First Tennessee Bank. Other sponsors include Smoothie King, ATC Fitness, Mahaffey Tent & Party Rentals, and Delivered magazine.

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.
