Schofield 5k, Fun Run and Fun Fair: June 4
Schofield Elementary School invites everyone to the 5K Road Race and Fun Fair on Sunday, June 4. Registration and Check-in begin at 8am, and race time is at 9:30am sharp!
The Kids Fun Run follows at 10:30am.
The fantastic fair on the school playground goes from 10:45am – 12:45pm. For 27 years, adults, teens, and children alike have enjoyed running the 5K Schofield Road Race, a USATF certified challenging course, featuring three main hills and finishing on a downhill.
The Road Race is unique in that all ages can participate at the same time, with many families training together in the weeks leading up to the event. On race day they start on Cedar Street and run side by side along the shady, tree-lined streets in the Poets Corner neighborhood of Wellesley finishing back at Schofield to enjoy the children’s fun run around the field and fun fair.
T-shirts are included for the first 300 registrants. Pre- registration fee is $25 / $30 after May 20th. Proceeds benefit the Schofield PTO.
Register as a team. Gather friends, teammates, colleagues or neighbors and run as a group.
