Championed by IUAA Board member Lori Pearson, the club is engaging many new alumni who currently are not IUAA members. IUAA continues to bolster its innovative alumni community through the formation of this new activity-based group. IUAA executive director Brian Brase is the IUAA liaison to the group. Brase was a member of the IU varsity track team and worked with USA Track and Field.
“We are excited to have begun this social running club for Hoosier alumni, friends and family. Together we can all run for the Glory of Old IU,” said founder Todd Oliver. “Many alums have already met up with fellow alumni at events throughout the United States. Everyone is really enthusiastic and we think we will grow quickly.”
The annual membership fee is $50, $15 of which goes to student scholarships. Members receive an IU Alumni Running Club t-shirt, an IU Runs sticker, an IU Alumni Running Club Sticker and a membership bracelet for entry at race events.
