Registration Open for Road Race!

Registration is still open for the Pirate Alumni Road Race & Fun Run on Saturday, April 11! This event is rain or shine but it’s looking more and more like it will be sunny that morning. So come out and get dusted in purple and gold colored powder and help us raise money for the Alumni Scholarship program.

You can register online today (Thursday) through 5:00 p.m. Online registration will then close to allow time to process entries. Tomorrow (Friday), you can register in person or over the phone at the Alumni Center at 901 E. 5th St. or at 252-ECU-GRAD (252-328-4723) during business hours (8:00-5:00). Day-of registration will be at UBE starting at 7:30 a.m.

If you’re already registered, check-in and packet pick-up will be at UBE on Friday 11:30-6:00 and on Saturday 7:30-8:30. (You can also register at check-in if needed).

Registration for either the 5K road race or the one-mile fun run is $25 today and tomorrow and $30 Saturday before the race.

Those who registered by March 31 are guaranteed an official race T-shirt. After that, T-shirts are on a first-come first-served basis while remaining supplies last. You are also welcome to wear a plain white T-shirt if you want to get dusted with color. Non-color lanes will be available.

If it is raining hard, the colored powder will not be used. If there is thunder/lightning, then the event would be canceled, but we do not anticipate this happening. We are closely monitoring the weather and as of now it looks like Saturday will be clear.

The 5K begins at 9:00 a.m. with the 1M fun run immediately following. The starting line for both is on Reade Circle near West End Dining Hall. The course will follow 5th St. in an out-and-back format. The 5K turnaround is at 5th and Sycamore St. The 1M turnaround is at 5th and Founders Dr.

No pets or strollers, please.

PLEASE NOTE that a portion of Reade and Cotanche streets as well as the Chico’s parking lot with spaces 100-112 will be CLOSED Saturday morning from approximately 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.

If you can’t make it or you’re not a runner, you can still support our Alumni Scholarship program by donating online.

Please call us if you have any questions. Thanks for your support!
