Red Hot Run


Each year, Roland Park Country School families, alumnae, faculty and members of the surrounding community lace up their sneakers for a morning of activity and fun! Now in its 9th year, the Red Hot Run has something for the entire family: a 5K race and 1 mile family fun walk through the school campus and historic Roland Park neighborhood, and a festive post-race party with refreshments and entertainment. All proceeds go to The Fund for Roland Park Country School. Mark your calendar for this year’s race, which will be held on Sunday, November 10, 2019.

If you are interested in serving on the planning committee, please contact Red Hot Run Chair, Anne Currie, P’ 2020, 2023 or Katy Spencer, 1993, Associate Director of Annual Giving.
