Tenley Tiger Run

The Tenley Tiger Run takes place on Sunday, April 22nd. The Tiger Run is a fundraiser benefiting the award-winning track and field teams at Wilson High School, sponsoring athlete travel to competitions, training clinics, and equipment. (We just sent 4 athletes to compete in the Indoor Track Nationals!)

The fourth annual run will take place on Sunday, April 22, 2018. It’s a great way to celebrate Earth Day and to mark progress on your new year’s running resolution. Last year, Lafayette won the "biggest team" award at this event.

There is a 5K, a one-mile race, and a cub run for kids. Something for the whole family — or get a team together.
