Run for All Ages
Every Year in Wakefield MA
The journeymen runners in the NE65+ Runners Club put on this race every year to support fitness in children of all ages. Specifically, the race provides an opportunity for very young runners to compete and share in the fun and excitement of a road race. The Club donates some of the proceeds from the race to the DMSE Children's Fitness Foundation. It is also the premier race in New England for "mature" runners, most of them Club members. Their accomplishments in the race are acknowledged in awards given for age divisions in five-year increments, ages 65 and up, all the way to 90+, and for age graded times to the top twelve master runners, 40 years and older, males and females. Cash prizes to the age graded male winners are provided by one of the Club's major sponsors: PACE: Prostate Awareness and Cancer Education race program. Cash prizes to the female winners are provided by the NE65Plus Runners Club.
Members of the Club wish to thank all of the sponsors, contributors and volunteers who helped make the race a success in 2010.These same sponsors will support the race again in 2011.
