Race begins at 10:00 am
Walpole High School
*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 41th 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!
This year, we will have a Youth Mile that will begin at 9:15. The Youth Mile will begin at the top of Clapp Street and finish in front of the high school. For the Youth Mile, we will award only the 3 top finishers overall. There will be no awards by gender/age. Here is the course: Start at Clapp, go down Common, Left on Mass, Left on Stone, Left on Ellis, Left on Common, Finish in front of high school.
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.
