Just for 2020, the RISD Spirit Run is going virtual! Race against your classmates and other schools on a course of your own choosing. Submit your time and compete on our live leaderboards!

The Excellence in Education Foundation for Richardson ISD Schools provides funding for programs that support excellence in teaching and high-achieving students, raises funds for the enrichment and innovations of teaching for all students, recognizes and rewards excellence in teaching and performance, and reinforces positive relations with the community.

Back for 2020, we've partnered with The Gobble Hobble to offer "The Richardson Challenge". The Richardson Challenge is a coming together of two great local races benefiting three great local charities in an attempt to bring the Richardson Racing Community together as one. As a challenge participant you will be registered for both 5k races and will receive the swag from each event. In addition, you will receive a challenge t shirt and a special challenge medal from each race that will link together at the end to create one big medal! 

To register for the first ever Richardson Challenge click here.
