Fund-raising road race on July 27


Lace up your sneakers for the town’s 10th annual 5-kilometer road race and 1-mile fun run. The July 27 event benefits the Parks and Recreation Department’s special-needs program. The fun run begins at 8:30 a.m., and the 5k sets off at 9 a.m. Both start and finish at the Floral Street School. The registration fee for the 5k is $20 before July 25, and $25 after that date. T-shirts will be provided to the first 100 registered runners. The fun run registration fee is $5, and finishers will receive certificates. Awards will be given to the top finishers in seven age groups, and for the top special-needs athletes and volunteers. Registration can be completed by mail, at the parks and recreation office, or on race day beginning at 7:30 a.m.
