    Trinity Academy

    The race will benefit Trinity Academy.

    Nestled within a wooded 38-acre campus, Trinity Academy is bustling with 380 students (TK – 12th grade). Trinity integrates authentic Christianity with rigorous academics. We focus on the classical arts and sciences and offer a full array of high-quality, competitive athletics and award-winning fine arts. Trinity rivals the best schools in the region, boasting 100% college-acceptance and generous per-student college scholarship offers.

    At Trinity, we begin with the end in view, asking “what skills, what knowledge, what virtues, what experiences must our graduates possess?” We then craft a “top-down, 12 to TK” curriculum. We use methods and materials that have stood the test of time. Our approach to education doesn’t work because it is classical. It is classical because it works.

    Perhaps as important as our approach to academics is our approach to student spiritual formation. At Trinity, we believe students should be given the opportunity to wrestle with, test and even doubt their faith in ways that ultimately prove their faith.

    College should not be the first time our students hear a salient challenge to their beliefs. Therefore, we offer students a safe place to work through their questions, doubts and fears, while surrounded by godly mentors who care about them and their relationship with Christ. Our approach is this: “We don’t tell our students what to think. We teach them how to think.”

    Second Empire Grand Prix Series

    The Second Empire 5K Classic is the 5th race in the Second Empire Series.

    Born from the Second Empire 5K Classic, the Grand-Prix is the inspiration of Raleigh entrepreneurs Kim Reynolds and husband Rod Garnas, along with Inside-Out Sports owner Cid Cardoso, Jr.

    In its fifteenth year, the Grand-Prix provides a fun way for competitive and non-competitive runners to give back to the community. Individual races pool a small portion of their operational funds along with Grand-Prix sponsors to cover series expenses.

    The combined effort has provided races with increased visibility and attendance while decreasing operational costs. This savings can directly translate to larger proceeds going to the benefiting charities.

    See more details on the Second Empire 2017 Grand Prix Series webpage.

    Child Care by Camp Trinity

    Camp Trinity is proud to be a sponsor of the Second Empire 5K Classic. As a piece of our sponsorship, Camp Trinity will be providing childcare for children of race participants at no cost to the runners. Your children can have a great camp-like experience with low ropes challenge courses and camp games while you run in the 5K race. The camp childcare program will be open from 8:00 am – 11:00 am on April 22nd.

    Thank you for choosing Camp Trinity for childcare during the Second Empire 5K Classic. Your child will be well cared for by our professional staff members. He or she is welcome to stay with us until 11 am or you may come at any time before then to pick them up to run in the 5K race at 9 am, the One Mile Fun Run at 10 am or the Kid’s Dash at 10:20 am. Please know that in order for them to run in these races, you will need to personally pick them up and take them to the appropriate race.

    The Camp Trinity staff will be available until 11:00 am giving you time to mingle with friends after the 5K race and even accept your award should you win your age group.

    We hope you and your children will stay on campus and enjoy our Trinity Academy Spring Fling beginning at 11:00 am. It will be a fun-filled afternoon including inflatables, games, food, and much more!!!!
