14th Annual UAB NAS Scholarship 5K/10K/Virtual Run presented by VIVA Health

Due to the precautionary measures regarding social distancing surrounding COVID-19, the 2020 UAB National Alumni Social Scholarship Run will be held virtually. We will still be hosting the scholarship run, just in a new way! A virtual run is a great way to stay active during social distancing and relieve some stress, while contributing to student scholarships. We will still have options for a 5K and 10K, along with a non-running option. You can run anywhere you want. The course can be flat, fast, brutal with hills, completed on a treadmill or from your couch (for non-runners). It's up to you!

It's easy to participate! On Saturday, April 25th, all you have to do is complete the distance you registered for and log your time through the RunSignUp website. NEW FOR 2020: All participants will receive a t-shirt and a finisher medal! All participants (5K, 10K, and non-runners) will receive a packet in the mail with a t-shirt, finisher medal, and drink ticket redeemable at an upcoming UAB NAS football tailgate.

Registration is now open. Currently enrolled UAB students receive a $10 discount. 

  • $30 through 3/15/2020
  • $35 from 3/16/2020 - 4/25/2020

We appreciate your continued support of the NAS and student scholarships during this unprecedented time. 

The UAB National Alumni Society (NAS) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization providing opportunities for alumni to network and give back to the university. The UAB National Alumni Society is proud to partner with our schools and colleges in raising over 2.6 million dollars from alumni to provide student scholarships. This fundraiser helps further the mission of our organization and raise scholarship funding for our students. Your support will allow the NAS to continue the services that currently exist and to provide even more opportunities for students, faculty, staff and alumni.
