New Mexico Bank & Trust presents the 2021 Run to Break the Silence, Sunday August 22, 2021, benefitting Presbyterian Ear Institute's School for Oral Deaf Education, where deaf and hard of hearing children, listen, learn and speak! We invite you to become a Silence Breaker by participating in a morning of fitness and fun either in-person or on your own as a virtual participant! The 2021 Run to Break the Silence will be held in-person at Mariposa Basin Park on Sunday, August 22, 2021 with a 5K and Kids Fun Run. We also understand that the pandemic may still make some of our friends nervous to gather, so we have created a virtual option just for you!
Online registration is now closed, but you can still register in person at Packet Pick-Up ( Saturday, 8/21 from 10am - 2pm at New Mexico Look - 6611 Menaul Blvd NE, Albuquerque, NM 87110) OR at registration on race day.
Our in-person events will start and finish at Mariposa Basin Park. No pets are allowed. Strollers are allowed, but at your own risk. There is a small portion of the course that is not as stroller friendly - grass, sand and gravel. All Run participants will receive a 2021 RTBS Sport-Tech T-shirt. On-Site registration will begin at 7:15am.
5K - $40 - 8:15am
Our Kids Fun Run will include kid-friendly and age appropriate obstacle courses. This year the kids fun run will be split into two courses, one for ages 2-6 and the other for ages 7-12. All children participating will receive a 2021 Kids Fun Run T-shirt and a SWAG bag with kids goodies from our run sponsors.
Kids Fun Run - $15 (Ages 2-6) - 9:15am

Prizes will be awarded for the 1st – 3rd place finishers (men’s and women’s) in each category. Kids Fun Run participants will receive finishers ribbons. The awards ceremony will be held at 9:45am.
If you prefer to participate virtually or live out of state but you want to support PEI, we hope you will sign up to run, walk or jog whichever length best suits you! Should you choose to be a virtual Silence Breaker, you may record your time/ distance through your individual registration page, or you can just run to be a Silence Breaker! Finisher Awards will only be awarded for those participating at the in-person event, however, your registration for the virtual event will include the official 2021 Run to Break the Silence T-shirt and don't forget your registration fees will help give the priceless gift of hearing and speaking to children attending our school!
