04.17.10 - Pi Mile Race (price increases after April 7)
Post date: Feb 24, 2010 9:31:58 PM
Last year, the GTCA entered the Pi Mile as a team for the first time. Each year, the fastest Tech Alumni team wins a $500 check towards it's corresponding student organizations' scholarship fund. Over 25 alumni teams entered in 2009, but the GTCA conquered all and won for alumni team points. Our alumni have a rich history of training on stadiums, hills, swim tests, spumoni challenges, weights, beach olympics, erg workouts, and red neck hot tubs. It is only fitting that we should win a running race, but it is now our job to defend our title as winners (and earn another $500). See this post to read more about the 2009 race.
If you can't run, join us at our staging area on the Tech Tower lawn and be prepared to cheer loud! The winners of the race will be determined by averaging the five lowest times from each group. GTCA members who race with us will receive a FREE GTCA Racing T-Shirt. Meet at the Tech Tower lawn before the race (7:30am) to gear up. After the race, we'll meet back there for some much deserved food & drinks!! Register online RIGHT NOW. (Be sure to select GT Crew Affinity Group as your team.)
