Hannah Randolph One Miler
Sunday, May 10, Mother’s Day, 9am
The Wellesley 1 Miler is a 1 mile run on the roads and fields of the beautiful Elm Bank Reservation. See the planned course map here.
The race will include a race wave, a youth wave (runners 16 and under) and a family wave. The race wave will start at 9 am and the others soon after.
We’ll have finisher medals and prizes for overall and age-group winners from our generous sponsors.
All proceeds from the race will go to the Hannah Randolph Memorial Fund, established in memory of Hannah Randolph, a Wellesley 9th grader who died in 2012. The fund provides scholarships to 9th graders who share Hannah’s passion for sports, arts, and friendship.
