Event Description :

Both the 10K and 1.7 mile Kid’s race start on Sunday, October 1st, at 10:00am.

Day-of registration: Field Memorial Library starting around 8:30 and ending at 9:40.

Parking: “the Bovio’s field”.

Routes:  Both races start at Burkeville Covered Bridge, to 116, Ives, Delabarre, Upper Baptist to Cemetary Hill, across Shelburne Falls Rd. and then over the bridge.  At this point, the 10K racers go LEFT on Reeds Bridge and return via Truce and Elm to finish at the library.  Those running the kid’s race take a RIGHT at the end of the bridge to go down Elm to finish at the library. Starts will be staggered.  Routes will be clearly marked, and there will be a volunteer directing kids as they come off of the bridge.

Special appreciation:  This year we send an extra thank you to Conway’s Police and Emergency teams, our rocking volunteer group, Ms. Helen Reed (for the use of the field) and our sponsors –Boyden Brothers Maple, Marathon Sports (formerly Northampton Running), Pekarski’s, South River Miso, The Forgotten Orchards, and Alexandre Pazmandy Therapeutic Massage.  While we appreciate the many years of support/sponsorship/help we’ve received from these groups over the years, they deserve extra appreciation this year since many of these folks also supported, donated, or helped out already this year with the 250th.

All proceeds benefit the Festival of the Hills Scholarship Fund.
