04.18.09 - Pi Mile Road Race Recap

posted Apr 24, 2009, 6:09 AM by AnneMarie DeBacker   [ updated Mar 27, 2011, 12:18 PM by GT Crew Alumni ]
For the first time, the GTCA entered the 2009 Pi Mile race (organized by the GT Alumni Association) as a team.  The fastest Tech Alumni team won a $500 check towards it's corresponding student organizations' scholarship fund.  Over 25 alumni teams entered, but only one alumni team has a rich history of training on stadiums, hills, swim tests, spumoni challenges, weights, beach olympics, erg workouts, and red neck hot tubs. 

The GTCA won for the fastest alumni group.  The total time of the top 5 finishers from each team determined the winning team.  The GTCA's top five had a combined time of 101 minutes.  Though many GTCA members participated in this 3.14 mile race (in their official GTCA racing tee that members recieve for free when racing with the GTCA), here are the top five finishers results:

  Place overall Place in age group
 Brian Waters

You can view the official results and pictures at the Georgia Tech's Alumni Associations webpage.   Thank you very much to everyone who ran with the GTCA, and to those who helped cheer on the GTCA at the Pi Mile as well.  See you next year!
