About the Angel Run
The Angel Run is a community "fun" raiser and family event. It brings members of Medfield together during a festive time of year to generate funds in support of Medfield families in need. In 2006, family and friends organized the run in remembrance of Natasha Domeshek. The Medfield Foundation Inc. (MFi) took up the holiday tradition in 2012. The majority of the proceeds will continue to support town residents through the Medfield Outreach Program and other MFi Initiatives.
The race is open to the public and all ages are encouraged to participate. The route is filled with decorations, carolers, water stations and other festive highlights. Upon finishing the race, runners will receive their run times and are invited to a post-run party at the school.

Angel Run Shirt
Commemorative Angel Run Shirts are available to participants who register by the early bird deadline of October 28, 2018. Please note that shirts are available in Adult and Youth sizes and will be performance material long-sleeved shirts. Please pick your sizes accordingly.
For those that miss the early bird deadline, a limited number of shirts will be available for sale on the day of the event.
Construction of the wooden bridge on Philip Street is now complete so the Angel Run will once again return to the official USATF certified 5K course. Timing will be by chip timing to ensure accurate results for all participants. The race begins and ends at Medfield High School. See the map below.
There is plenty of parking at both Medfield High School and the attached Blake Middle School. For overflow parking, we suggest using Metacomet Park which is only a few blocks walk to the starting line.
Post-Race Party and Awards Ceremony
All participants and spectators are invited to join us at the Angel Run post-race party in the cafeteria where you can enjoy a variety of snacks, baked goods, cold water and hot drinks. The Awards Ceremony to recognize finishers in a variety of categories will begin at 1:30pm in the cafeteria. Follow the signs at the conclusion of the race.
Specialty Registration Categories
Are you a competitive runner? Be sure to select the competitive runner option during registration to position yourself in the first starting group. There are no minimum times required - you know if you can keep up with the pack. You'll get a few minutes head start before the pack of screaming children is released to chase you down.
New This Year!
This year runners pushing strollers can register for the Sleigh Division! Just like Santa speeds through the night with his sleigh, we know that some of our runners speed through the streets of Medfield with their Sleighs (strollers)! Awards will be given for the top male and female runners and also for the best decorated sleigh. Be sure to select Sleigh Division during registration.
Shirt and Bib Pick-up or Delivery
Shirts and Bibs will be delivered to Medfield residents a few days before the race. Out of town participants can pick up their Shirts and Bibs at the Registration Desk inside the Medfield High School Cafeteria. Medfield residents who miss the early bird registration will need to pick up their Bibs at the Registration Desk as well. Look for the Registration Desk signs.
