Event Description

This thrilling two-loop course blends lightning-fast grassy straightaways with treacherous, winding paths in the woods in the campus surrounding Peninsula Catholic High School. Best of all, 100% of registration profits (after costs) will be donated to charity. 

But which charity? A number of teams will be competing for a grand prize: the right to choose which charity will receive 50% of the race registration profits. No matter what, the other 50% of race profits (and donations) will go straight to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. 

The race is hosted PCYT, a club with a mission to teach teenagers that community service and acts of kindness can be fun. To see examples of of their good work like helping the police clean up a beach, packing lunches to feed the homeless, or donating a car to refugees, check out their YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/@peninsulacatholicyoutube
