Info about the event
Welcome to the 2017 Mashpee High School Road Race. This event will feature a 5k fun run/walk to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Cape Cod. This is being done as part of a Mashpee High School senior project for Austin Gray. He will be graded on his work and on the success of the event. Austin is gaining his first experience with running an event like this and is learning how to market, organize, and financially plan for the 5k. The Boys and Girls club has been a huge part of Austin’s life and this is his way of giving back. The event will be on April 23, 2017 starting at 8:30 a.m. at the Mashpee High School. All participants will be part of a fun run/walk through the cross-country course around the school grounds. This includes grass,sand,gravel,road. Runners will start with a lap around the track and continue around the tree line. They will take a quick excursion through the Mashpee woodlands until they come back to the track. This will be done twice to complete the 5-kilometer distance. It’s $25 to participate and each runner/walker will receive a complimentary t-shirt on race day upon signing up on Race Wire (while supply last). Please come out to support a great community event and help Austin with his senior project.
