Foundation for Educational Excellence

Race to Educate

The Annual Race to Educate is organized by the Foundation for Educational Excellence. The 2023 Race 2 Educate will take place on June 2 -3 at Piedra Vista High School. We are bringing the 24hour endurance race for walkers, runners, and mountain bikers. This year we are also adding a 24hr Pickle Ball Tournament. The goal is for each individual or team to complete a minimum of 24 miles if walking or running and 48 miles if mountain biking between 5pm on the 2nd and 5pm on the 3rd. The event will kick off at the PVHS Football field and will take place primarily on the PVHS Track. Mountain Bikers will have access to the Anasazi Trail as well. Pickle Ball Tournament will take place in the PVHS Auxiliary Gym. This is a great opportunity to support local teachers and students and make memories that will last a life time.
