THE RACE WAS A GREAT SUCCESS!
950 runners and walkers registered to continue Governor Cellucci's last campaign, the UMass ALS Cellucci Fund to fund breakthrough ALS research at UMass Medical School. They all raced for an ALS cure!
To benefit the UMass ALS Cellucci Fund, the Second Annual Governor Cellucci Tribute Road Race will be held in the Governor's hometown of Hudson, Massachusetts on Saturday, July 25 at 9 a.m. The USATF-certified course for both runners (5K) and walkers (1.5 mi) traverses Hudson's Downtown Historic District, offering a flat, fast track. #UMassALS5k
Team Leaders may be either runners or walkers, but both runners and walkers may join any team. Awards will be given to all registered members of the largest team.
