The 5K is a flat road race around scenic Lake Quannapowitt, beginning and ending at the same area on the lower common. The Kids 1-Mile Fun Run, for children ages 10 and under, also takes place from the lower common. Although the 1-mile route is protected and lined with parents cheering on their children, parents do not run the 1-mile, so this race may not be appropriate for children under age 5.
Port-a-potties will be available for the race.
The proceeds will benefit the Greenwood School PTO and the Wakefield Educational Foundation (WEF), both 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations. The Greenwood School PTO funds classroom supplies, books for the school library, and cultural and school community events. WEF provides educational resources and grants to Wakefield's Public School students. These needs are met with the generosity of businesses, organizations and individuals like you.
