About This Activity

Why choose Chandler Prep Academy’s 3nd Annual “Running of the Nerds”  5K and 10K run?  

All participants will receive a tshirt and goody bag with Nerd Glasses...all while running in a beautiful setting AND helping with a worthy goal! 

The goal---

You will be helping 87 students fulfill their fundraising goal for their 2017 Senior Trip to Washington, D.C. 

 The school---

 Chandler Preparatory Academy believes in each students' innate potential to comprehend the rich tradition of Western Civilization to which they are heirs and to grow in the virtues that mark a profound, philosophical life -- summarized by the triad of our Latin motto: verum, pulchrum, bonum -- truth, beauty, and goodness. The students' Senior trip is an important part of this classical education experience from which our school is modeled. During their time at Chandler Prep, the students focus exclusively on learning about Western Civilization. The trip to Washington D.C. enhances the focus of the Western Civilization by providing them an opportunity to physically experience the cultural and political center of our part of the Western world.


The run---


The race course will begin and end at the SRP PERA Club park in Tempe and will follow the canal for most of the run.  This race welcomes runners of all levels.
