Lawrenceville, NJ –Ready … set … go … sign up for the 11th annual Lawrenceville Big Red Race, to be held on Sunday, May 4, 2014 on the School's campus (2500 Main Street, Lawrenceville, N.J.). The Race has raised more than $100,000 over the past decade, all used to send underserved Lawrence Township children to the Lawrenceville School Camp, a residential summer camp in Warren County, N.J. Race participants are also encouraged to bring canned food items, which will be donated to local non-profits fighting hunger.

Participants are encouraged to pre-register by April 28 to receive a 2014 Big Red Race t-shirt. There is a $20 non-refundable entry fee for adults; $25 on race day. The non-refundable entry fee for runners ages 12-17 is $10; $15 on race day. A food donation will also serve in lieu of a $5 entry fee for runners under age 12, each of whom will receive a finisher's medal and a t-shirt. Tickets for the Big Red Raffle will also be on sale. A host of awards are up for grabs, including a special treat for the Lawrence Township family with the most participants in the Adult 5K and Kid's Race.
