About our Race
Our race has always been about helping the Needham Community. During registration, you will be asked which Needham first responder organization you would like net proceeds to be donated to. The organization with the highest percent votes gets the highest amount of money, etc. The organization options are:
* Needham Police
* Needham Fire
* Needham School nurses
* Needham Beth Israel Hospital.
All registered runners will receive a Needham Running Club 2021 multi-functional "Buff" and a 10% off Marathon Sports coupon! All runners who submit their times will be included in a raffle which includes:
* $25 Amazon gift cards (20)
* $50 Marathon Sports gift cards (4)
* Race Entry for the 2022 Needham New Year's Day 5K race (6) and other items.
This is the first race of the 2021 Needham Bank Grand Prix 5K series. Go to RunNeedham.com for more information on the race series.
* Please do not show up at the YMCA in Needham for this virtual race because no one will be there.
