Over 500 members of the Bay Ridge Prep community - including school mascot Ty the Tiger - showed their school spirit by running, jogging, walking and cheering along during 2019 Tiger Trot. The 21st running of the annual fun run to benefit Bay Ridge Prep took place Friday, May 3, and saw younger students make a quarter-mile dash toward the finish line, while older students and adults completed a 1.1 mile loop along Shore Road Promenade.

The Tiger Trot serves as the major annual fundraising event for Bay Ridge Prep, with the 2019 event raising over $112,000 this year to support improvements to the school’s facilities, as well as provide professional growth opportunities to Bay Ridge Prep faculty, enabling the school to attract, retain and develop talented teachers. After the Tiger Trot, runners and spectators enjoyed bagels at the 81st Street Gym while the lead runners in each category were presented with trophies.

Full race results can be found in the link below. It is important to note that race times are recorded for each runner from the time a runner and his/her bib crosses the starting line to the time he/she crosses the finish line. Because runners start the race in waves, it is possible that a runner may cross the finish line but still have recorded a faster race time than a runner who has already crossed the finish line.
Thank you to our 2019 Tiger Trot parent volunteers that offered up their time and energy in support of the largest school-wide event of the year!
