For 18 years Race at the Cape has brought together our community to celebrate and embrace health and wellness. Started by former CHC P.E. faculty member, Ms. Alice Meredith, the “Race at the Cape” has become a hallmark of the fall season on campus.
Last year, the race went on all across Hampton Roads. Families laced up their running shoes, plotted their own courses and sent photos of their virtual runs. While we loved that the tradition continued, this past Saturday’s race seemed to hold an extra element of importance to the community.
Event organizer, Mr. Brian Walker said, “It was great seeing so many Cape Henry families and friends of the School back on campus, participating in and cheering on our runners.”
Saturday’s race saw a sold-out field for the one-mile “Fun Run” of 300 participants and over 280 tackled the 5K course. Students from Prekindergarten to Grade 12 ran, jogged, and walked alongside parents, alums, and community friends.
“I love participating in Race at the Cape. It is so symbolic of our core value of community and the growing participation numbers each year is a testament to the work of an awesome CHC team of organizers and volunteers,” exclaimed Mrs. Deanna Thompson who captured first place in her age division.
