Big Red Race Trophies
The Big Red Race is an annual 5k fundraiser held on The Lawrenceville School’s campus. Hosted by the School’s faculty, staff, and students, the race is sponsored by more than a dozen local organizations as well as individual and family donors. Awards are given to the top three finishers overall and the top three finishers from each age range (10 and under, 11-14, 15-19, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and up).
Each year, 100% of the proceeds from the Big Red Race support children attending the Lawrenceville School Camp, a residential summer camp for children of low-income families from surrounding communities. In addition to the 5k, the Big Red Race includes a series of Children's Races where the "entry fee" is a canned goods donation. Since its inception in 2004, the Big Red Race has funded the summer camp experience for hundreds of campers, and collected more than 5 tons of canned goods to fight local hunger.
The Big Red Race has become a fun-filled tradition for members of the Lawrenceville School community and neighboring residents. During the pandemic, more than 500 racers competed virtually in all corners of the country and the globe. This year, the School will host the race on campus and virtually. Racers are welcome to participate, no matter where they are, in supporting those in need, creating opportunities for children, and showing Big Red spirit.
School Camp

Please Support School Camp

All proceeds from the Big Red Race fund the Lawrenceville School Camp, a summer camp experience for underprivileged youth that has been in operation for more than 100 years. Please support the School Camp if you can - it changes lives!
Children's Races

Children's Races and Food Drive

For the past 17 years, our children's races have raised over 5 tons of canned goods to fight local hunger. Please consider donating to your local food bank to help those in hunger, as the global health crisis only amplifies the critical need of folks facing food shortages.
