Are you a pro runner?
Race Judicata will provide a finish line clock so all registered runners can mark their own time. Please note that in the interest of ensuring SLJ students get the most benefit from this event, we opted for more economical timing technology than you may be used to.

SLJ is a public high school that serves a population of low-income students of color—70% of them live at or below the poverty line, and 75% will be the first in their family to go to college. SLJ does not screen its students, meaning that it accepts incoming 9th graders irrespective of academic ability, and through its three pillars of education—intensive academic instruction, robust enrichment offerings woven into the curriculum, and individualized college preparatory support—gives them the tools to create a brighter future for themselves. Last year, 96% of the senior class graduated and 100% were accepted into college.
Brooklyn Law School has partnered with SLJ since its inception. The Student Bar Association has been committed to helping raise funds to deliver the enrichment programming and college and career services that the school would not otherwise have the resources to provide.
Donations in support of the runners/walkers can be made through SLJ's non-profit partner, the Adams Street Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization. Cash and checks will be accepted on the day of the race.
