If you enjoy fun and a moderately challenging 5K Road Races then this scenic run is just for you! The small town of Winchendon takes great pride in welcoming runners from near and far. We offer a great experience for "first timers" as well as the "seasoned" runner. We have great music, a professional timing company, awards for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in each age group, flowers and trophies for overall winners (male and female), special trophy for the "Run to Represent" winner, great refreshments and awesome giveaways including I-pods and a free triathlon race entry, but that's not all! We are known to pay great attention to details like having refreshing ice cold towels at the finish line, a beautifully performed National Anthem and complimentary massages for all participants. We have showers available after the race, and our Annual Summer Solstice Fair starts just after the race is over! The overall winners are welcome to participate in the parade through the town at noon (we will have a cool convertible ready for you!) to celebrate their achievement! The race will start at 8:30am. We hope to see you in June!
Our kids 1 mile and 1/3 mile races start after the adult 5K Race (around 9:15). Ronald McDonald will warm up the kids before their race and will perform his show after both of the races are over. The kids will run on the bike path and running track to stay away from traffic. All participants are winners and will receive a t-shirt and a medal!
