Race begins at 10:00 am
Walpole High School
Any runners who pre-register by noon on Thursday 8/29 can pick up their bib number and t-shirt at Marathon Sports in Mansfield, MA on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. They can also pick them up at the race.
*5K Race begins promptly at 10:00 am, followed immediately by the 10K Race. Tables will open for registration at 8:30 am.
We are excited! This is the 40th year for the race, making it one of the oldest in the area and a wonderful Walpole tradition! We expect over 600 participants, many volunteers, and loads of cheering spectators!
We will be keeping the basic blueprint of this fun community event the same and are eager to add a few features. This year, we are proud to announce that we will be following the Boston Marathon’s lead to be more environmentally-friendly—our race is “GOING GREEN”! We will recycle everything we can, we will use all leftover materials from races past, and we are encouraging participants to walk/carpool to the race and to register online to reduce paper usage.
