Check out our 2018 Tiger Trot highlight video above
Over the years, Bay Ridge Prep's fun run has become our most popular and largest fundraiser. The entire community gathers in celebration of fitness, camaraderie, and school spirit. The fun run happens every May and raises funds from our neighbors, families, and friends to support Bay Ridge Prep's mission and the students we serve. Our mascot, Ty the Tiger, will be there to cheer everyone on as they trot for a mile along Bay Ridge's Shore Road Promenade.
What Happens on Race Day?
The race takes place on the Shore Road Promenade (Enter on Shore Road and 79th Street Park and follow path to overpass; cross overpass.) Runners (other than students and faculty) are asked to check in at the Registration Table at 1:00 pm to pick up numbers. A professional race timing company is overseeing running times for the fun run. Race start time is to be confirmed. Kindergarten-Grade 4 students run/walk first for a quarter mile. Runners in Grades 5-12, faculty, alumni, and parents follow for a brisk 1.2 mile trot. A post-race reception (featuring a brief trophy presentation) will occur after the Fun Run in the Lower and Middle School's gymnasium (8101 Ridge Blvd).
