The 4th Annual Paladin Pacer is a spirit-filled event to support students and teachers at Pinecrest Academy, a private PreK3-12 Catholic school that strives to form Christian leaders who will transform society.
The 2023 event features a NEW 5K course on Pinecrest Academy’s beautiful 68-acre campus. Be ready for over 2 miles of scenic dirt trails, grass, and HILLS! Although not likely the best opportunity for a PR time, this is guaranteed to be one of the prettiest and most fun courses close to home. The 1-Mile Fun Run, perfect for children, includes three laps around the school driveway so parents can support their little Olympians throughout the race.
The competition can be friendly or fierce (you’ll have your choice of both!) as you run or walk with so many students, athletes, teachers, priests, missionaries and neighbors. Pinecrest cheerleaders along the course promise to boost your energy just when you need it. And the Paladin Pacer EPIC costume contest returns! Dress in costume as a group or individual, as we’ll award a prize for the best costume! You don't want to miss this awesome race that is fast-becoming one of Pinecrest's favorite traditions.Event Schedule and Pricing
