Race in Place: The Tom Pfeifle Memorial Virtual 5k & How To Participate – See Below!
About the Event
The Tom Pfeifle Memorial 5k Run/Walk is an annual event held in loving memory of Tom Pfeifle. We gather to run, walk, raise funds for the outdoors, and be together. The 2020 event will be on September 20, starting at Founders Park and routed on the bike path.
We gather to celebrate the things that Tom loved—the outdoors, exercise, and community. By gathering in his memory, we reinforce our favorite memories of Tom: a life filled with friends, laughter, kindness, and adventures.
All proceeds will benefit the NEW Raider Park running and biking trails at Stevens High School open for use by Rapid City Public Schools students, staff and all members of the community.
Family and friends are welcome to join!
Strollers and Strider bikes encouraged. Dogs are discouraged.
Raider Park at Stevens High School will
be the sole beneficiary of the proceeds from the 2020 Tom Pfeifle Memorial Virtual 5k Run/Walk event.
Raider Park encompasses more than 30 acres of a mix of flat and rolling terrain. The land upon which Raider Park sits is owned by the Rapid City Area School District. The School Board has given permission to Stevens High School teachers, Seth Keene and Tom Keck, to lead the development of this park, but with no school funding. This challenge has been fully embraced: hundreds of hours of volunteer time have gone into clearing trash and downed limbs; trimming trees; mapping and identifying trails. Running, biking and trail groups have
been active volunteers and supporters. Raider Park is the recipient of $110,000 in the last two years from Tom Pfeifle Memorial 5K Run/Walk which is a 501(c)(3) organization. This organization seeks to promote and advance the development of Raider Park.
