Elinor Mire Scholarship: Inspiring a Culture of Fitness

Elinor Mire


Elinor Mire was the first ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot run director, president of the Austin Runners Club and an avid marathoner, ultra marathoner, and triathlete. She inspired the ThunderCrew to continue her great work, creating an Austin tradition which has raised nearly $3.8 million for Caritas of Austin.

Mire promoted fitness through her work in the public schools and strongly believed in the value of physical fitness, particularly for children.ThunderCloud Subs is proud to continue its tradition of the Elinor Mire Run Entry Scholarship.

Each year, we continue her efforts to promote children’s fitness by granting ThunderCloud Subs Turkey Trot entries to Central Texas children. The Elinor Mire Run Entry Scholarship is a fitting legacy to the culture of fitness she inspired and helped build in Central Texas.
