The Run Wild Campaign
At Episcopal Collegiate, we pursue excellence in all areas. The Run Wild Campaign, a fundraising initiative that will fund significant enhancements to our athletic facilities, is no different. The project, broken into two phases, includes a new athletic complex with a first-class track and field, significant updates to our existing stadium, and upgraded varsity locker rooms in the Championship Gym. These changes will not only support our dedicated athletes but will also benefit the entire Episcopal Collegiate community.
Thank you to all those who have already committed to the project, helping us secure more than $4.2 million in commitments. It's not too late to contribute your support to the project, so please consider making a gift of any size! Together, we can create something that will be transformational to all our students, our athletic program, and our future.
Thank you to all who have supported the Run Wild Campaign! The remaining construction of Phase 1 of the project – the new athletic complex in the front of campus – is still scheduled to be completed later this spring, despite several weather delays. As soon as the field has dried out enough to allow for heavy equipment access, the remaining Phase 1 work will commence.
The next step in the formation of the athletic complex’s 400-meter, 8-lane track is to lay down a layer of gravel to be covered by a layer of asphalt. This process will need 4-5 days of dry weather, followed by 30 days to allow the asphalt to cure. The track surface will then be poured – a process that should take approximately 10 days. The final steps will include the striping of the track (running lanes, finish lines, etc.)
Phase 2 of the Run Wild Campaign will include significant updates to the existing stadium. You can learn more about both phases and support the project by contacting a member of our Development Team:
