About the Race

Our event continues to grow with your help! Last year, we had over 500 racers participating in the Tenley Tiger Run. 

On Earth Day, April 22, 2018, we celebrate our fourth annual race. There is something for everyone: a race course that winds around the Tenleytown neighborhood, home of Wilson High School.

The race is organized by the Tiger Track Boosters with the support of the Wilson PTSO and many generous sponsors.

Race course

5K Race

The course is a loop: race twice for a  USATF-certified 5K. The course begins on Chesapeake near the Wilson Auditorium entrance. Runners head west on Chesapeake, then turn right on 41st Street, then right on Davenport, then left on Belt, then left on Harrison to turn left looping back onto 41st Street, then left on Chesapeake, and right on 40th Street past Wilson High School. Then turn left in the turn that occurs just before Albemarle and continue back to 40th Street past Wilson High School and turn right on Chesapeake down to a U-turn back to 41st Street to repeat the loop. The finish line for all races occurs in front of the main entrance to Wilson High School.
