Thanks to Cabell Rosanelli, co-founder of the THEALUMRUN, for answering our questions. 

What makes THEALUMRUN unique?
THEALUMRUN is the first road race event to combine the passion college and university alumni, students and sports fans have for their favorite colleges / universities with the fun and excitement of a 5k / 10k road race. Each Alumrunner chooses the school they want to run for and receives a premium tech tee featuring the colorway of their school.

THEALUMRUN has something for the whole family.  Kids can participate in the Future Alumni Fun Run – a 1,000m trek down Pennsylvania Ave with their favorite college mascots. Earning a PhD in post-race celebrations, THEALUMRUN features a tailgate inspired finish festival with food and refreshments and a wellness village filled with spa and fitness activities from sponsors like Elizabeth Arden Red Door and lululemon.
