For years, the Larchmont Elementary School R.A.T. “Run At Twilight” Race has been a favorite fall tradition for the student body and neighborhood to help raise money for the school and build a sense of community throughout the neighborhood.
We invite you to join us in running or walking the 1 mile Kids Run or the 5K Run throughout the streets of Larchmont, followed by a party with refreshments and good times at ODU's Brick Field on Friday September 29, 2023.
