About This Event
The 5th Annual Tonneson + Co 5k will take place around beautiful Lake Quannapowitt and is great for runners of all skill levels, as well as walkers. Strollers are welcome!
Proceeds from the event will go directly to the Wakefield Interfaith Food Pantry to benefit the Kids First Program. The Kids First program provides food to families with school age children during the summer months. Many families receive free or reduced price breakfast and lunch during the school year, but this help is not available during the summer. The Kids First program provides the added food items to help replace those meals.
The course will start near the bandstand at Lake Quannapowitt (corner of Church St. & Lake Ave.) , continue around the lake in a clockwise direction, and finish near the bandstand.
Awards will be given to the top male and female finishers. There will also be age group awards for the top three male and female finishers in the following age groups:
14-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70+. Participants that are 13 and under will receive a medal.
T-shirts are guaranteed for all participants registered by June 15, 2017
Numbers can be picked up on race day at the bandstand starting at 7:00 am.
Please join us for refreshments and the awards ceremony after the race.
