Course: This 5K is a straight, flat course down a residential street, and it turns around at some train tracks. There was a staffed water stop at the turn-around, but unfortunately neither attendant mentioned to us that this was where we were supposed to turn around! So I ran a little extra…
Charity: Merrimack Valley Feline Rescue
Size: Around 100 people.
Awards: There were two age groups for each gender, with a winner and a runner up for both kid and adult categories. (Brag alert: I was the first female! I’ve never been in the front of the pack so this was a great confidence booster.)
Snacks: No free food or drinks, but there were a few vendors selling stuff like BBQ and cupcakes. I brought my own Gatorade and ate a free sample of Harrow’s Chicken Pie.
