Event Details
Join us for the 6th Annual Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation 5K Run/Walk at the beautiful Wachusett Mountain Ski Area in Princeton, MA. It's a fun event for the whole family! The course is mostly flat with one small hill. See the course map for details.

Runners and walkers from out of town can still participate and show their support! Virtual runners can tune in to the beginning of the race via Instagram Live. Then, run on your own and post your photos!
Purpose of the Race
Funds raised from the 5K allow the Vanessa T. Marcotte Foundation to provide valuable safety programs to the community. The Foundation envisions a world where women live free from harassment. They advocate for safety awareness, violence prevention, and gender equality. They further their mission by providing self-defense training, and they partner with organizations to provide programming and mentorship opportunities to address the root causes of violence against women. Vanessa Marcotte inspires their work, and her kind, philanthropic and compassionate spirit continues to influence people of all ages.
