Tailgate Challenge

Which Atlanta Alumni Association has the most school spirit? Let’s show everyone why Atlanta is the Capital for College football fanatics. We are inviting Atlanta Based Alumni Associations to come out and turn this 10K into a 6 mile tailgate party. Whether you are running, walking, volunteering, or just cheering everyone on – you can help your alumni association win a happy hour at a top Atlanta venue and Atlanta BeltLine bragging rights.

How does my alumni association enter the Tailgate Challenge?

Each alumni association will need a single point of contact.  To register your alumni association, please email Kristina Doerr at kristinadoerr@gmail.com.  Once you register, we will provide you with more details about how your alumni sign up for the Eastside 10K as part of your team and where to set up your tailgate.

How are the awards determined?

Based on school spirit! If you are running, walking, or volunteering, wear your school colors, paint your face, dress up, or do anything else creatively tasteful to show your school spirit! If you are manning your tailgate section, bring your tent or table and other school items, dress up, and cheer on the runners. The more people you have running, volunteering or cheering, the better. 

How many winners will there be

We will select three winning associations.

When will the teams know who wins
