Acushnet Road Race Back To School Challenge The Committee has made the decision to conduct a children's fun run. The run will be run entirely on school groups, void of any city streets.
The course will follow the perimeter of the athletic field's in the back of the school. At this writing we anticipate the children can run a loop of 3/4 of a mile, and for the younger ones, 1/2 mile. Parents are strongly encourage to run with their children. There will be no awards or prizes. A display clock will be at the finish.
At present all children who are pre-entered will be guaranteed a special t-shirt. Children signing up the day of the race will receive a shirt if available. Please note that we need a slot of time to get these ready. BETTER IMAGE APPAREL of New Bedford is providing all of the shirts, and creating a custom design for the shirt. ACUSHNET CREAMERY is providing all the kids who enter a coupon for a free ice cream cone at the creamery. Our good friends at J&R PLASTICS of Acushnet are working to provide another little surprise for the kids. Stay tuned for this.
A hard copy form will be out shortly, and you will be alerted in plenty of time.
The Kids will actually be running for their school. The Committee will look at the success of the race, and hopefully provide that school with a donation. It is important that when signing up, that in the team/club section the school is entered. Follow the information here, or on the Acushnet Road Race Facebook page.
Please help us make this a success, and encourage our kids to think of running as a really good sport. Then lead by example, and enter in the Acushnet Road Race 3.2 mile Walk, or the 4.1 mile run.
