20th Annual Father's Day Road Race
June 15, 2014
Come Celebrate Our 20th Year!
Start Father’s Day off on the right foot and come participate in the Children’s Museum in Easton’s 20th Annual Road Race and Fun Walk! This year marks our 20th Annual Father’s Day Road Race and Family Fun Walk. The race has been a staple for many families south of Boston and this year is a big milestone. For twenty years, this event has been a community success because of businesses and the community who believe in strong family and community life. Last year, more than 700 runners and walkers participated … and with the addition of family members, supporters, and volunteers, there were more than 1,200 in attendance. Being our 20th year, we expect a great turnout! This family event will be held on Sunday, June 15th at 9:00 AM.
This annual road race offers three choices, including both a 10k and 5k race and a 5k Fun Walk. The race course is one of the area’s most picturesque courses, winding past mansions and H.H. Richardson historical buildings in North Easton. The course takes runners and walkers through the privately held, Langwater Estate. The race goes under the Gate Lodge, past the Gardener’s Cottage, both are National Historic Landmarks, over the Langwater Bridge and into the Governor Ames Estate.
We also welcome teams. Have a group of 10 or more runners at work or an ‘active’ group of family members or friends? Why not run as a team? Team results will be posted. Can you say…”Bragging Rights?” Team members enjoy a discounted entry fee of $15 and t-shirts are guaranteed to all members.
