The Stevens Raiders Track & Field team will be hosting an 8K run and relay to raise money for our team and the Lemoine Trout Scholarship. Race fees and donations from this 8K will be donated to this scholarship fund which students at Stevens High School can apply for to help pay for college. Some of the money raised from this race may also be donated to local families who are fighting cancer (or other illnesses) or to groups such as The American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen, and many, many more.
We challenge you, businesses, groups and teams to come join us and help raise as much money as possible to help us honor the late Lemoine Trout and help us in our fight against cancer! Lemoine Trout was a loving father and husband who was a very dedicated teacher and coach in the Rapid City School District for many years. He was the Head Track & Field coach at Stevens until 2002 when he passed away due to cancer. The Lemoine Trout Scholarship fund has given many kids some financial assistance over the years to help with their college expenses at primarily Black Hills State University (Lemoine’s alma mater) but many other schools as well.
The race is scheduled for 5:30pm on April 15. T-shirts to all who are registered by April 5. Your bib number is your ticket for an awesome post-race feed!
Packet Pick-up & Race Day Registration is on April 15 from 11:00am – 12:30pm in the Stevens High School gym lobby or from 4:00pm – 5:00pm on April 15 at the Sioux Park track.
We will have a competitive chip-timed 8K run where you can race for individual and/or team awards. Everyone who signs up for the 8K run will be eligible for the individual awards. If you create a team in either our male, female or co-ed divisions your team will also be competing for team awards. We will use cross country scoring for all team divisions which is based on where each member of your team places. A minimum of 3 runners are required with a maximum of 5. The race route will be from the Sioux Park track to and around Canyon Lake Park and back. Awards for the top 3 males and females in the 8K run and top team in each division!
Don’t want to run the entire 8K? We also have an 8K 2-person relay. One runner will run the first half of the race (approximately 4K) and the other runner will run the second half of the race (approximately 4K). For the 8K relay we will also have a male, female and co-ed division. We will provide race batons for the race. The race route will be from the Sioux Park track to and around Canyon Lake Park and back. The relay exchange zone is at the northwest corner parking lot at Canyon Lake Park. Awards for the top team in each division!
