About this Event
This is the fourth annual 5k and 1 mile fun run for the Rockport Public Schools Health and Wellness Programs. The race was born from the desire to get our students and community more involved in health and wellness activities. The money raised from this event goes directly to our health and wellness programs at the Rockport Public Schools. Last year the money we raised went to planting trees to shade some of our classrooms, a new water fountain with the capability to fill a water bottle, hydroponics planting system for our science room and lots more.
This is a 5k course that is all on pavement. The course will start in downtown Rockport at Harvey Park. The address is 4 High Street, Rockport, MA 01966. The link to the course is http://www.usatf.org/routes/view.asp?rID=477927
There will be a huge raffle after the races have concluded. We will be raffling off great prizes from local businesses on the North Shore. You can purchase raffle tickets the day of the race and each racer will get free tickets in their race bags.
Cash prizes and raffle tickets will be awarded to the overall top 3 male and female runners. There will also be prizes awarded for the top 3 runners male and female per age division. All 5K runners who cross the finish line will earn a Motif #15K race medal.
