**Race Information

The Mahwah Schools Foundation is pleased to support the Mahwah public schools through a Grant program which seeks to inspire innovation, excellence and creativity throughout the school district. The Grant program is a voluntary, application-based opportunity that assists teachers and administrators in providing curriculum enriching activities, projects, programs and items that can not currently be met by the Board of Education budget. It is through successful community programs, corporate sponsorships and events, such as the Thunderbird Run, that we are able to support and enhance our public school system and the opportunities available to the children of Mahwah.

‚ÄčThe annual Thunderbird Run is a successful community celebration with over 1,200 people in attendance either running, walking, volunteering or cheering on participants. In addition to the increased runner involvement yearly, we are fortunate to have a strong presence from our local teachers, civic groups and the business community. This year’s event will once again highlight the best of what Mahwah has to offer, including beautiful scenery, hospitality and community spirit. Thanks to the successful introduction in 2009 of our health fair, Trails to Wellness, we are lucky to have over two dozen local businesses come out to educate, inspire and motivate our community. Our Kids Run had everyone cheering as over 225 kindergarten to fifth grade runners made their way to the finish line! Each year we expect an even larger turnout as we continue to evolve into a healthy and active festival of events for all ages and skill levels.

*The Thunderbird Run will also offer a 5K Group Training program designed to help you comfortably run a 5K.  

*Cash Prizes will be awarded in certain categories, as will medals for age groups.

*Parking for the event will be at the Joyce Kilmer School and Mahwah High School parking lots. The parking lots at the other schools on Ridge Road will be available as well including Ramapo Ridge Middle School and Lenape Meadows School, both a short walk to the High School.
