Lawrenceville’s 19th Big Red Race is going global! Register today to participate, either on campus or anywhere around the world. All proceeds benefit School Camp (in Asbury, N.J.) which, for more than a century, has provided a two-week, residential summer camp experience for local, under-resourced kids. Lawrenceville students serve as volunteer counselors and it’s hard to tell who has the most fun, campers or counselors!
The official Big Red Race Day is May 1 on the Lawrenceville School campus (2500 Main Street, Lawrenceville, N.J.), but virtual participants can submit their results by June 15. Feel free to complete the 5K distance by any means you’d like – running, walking, wheelchair, biking, scooter – everything goes! You’ll cross the finish line knowing you’ve helped give local kids – as well as Lawrentian volunteers - lifelong memories of camp fires, swim lessons in the pond, arts and crafts, sports, cabin competitions, camp banquets, and so much more.
Pre-registration fees are $20 for participants 18 years of age and under ($25 on race day); $30 for those over 18 ($35 on race day). If you’ll be racing on campus, please consider bringing canned food items for the Big Red Food Drive to benefit non-profits assisting local, food-insecure families.
