This certified USATF 5k road race is a great family event for a great cause as all proceeds go towards the Police Athletic League to benefit the RDA Fund.
The activities begin at 10:30 a.m. with a FREE kids run and the official 5k kicks off at 11 a.m., from the Chelmsford Elks, 300 Littleton Rd., Rte. 110.
The route is a mostly flat course that runs throughout Chelmsford with two water stops. Cash prizes for two overall winners will be given as well at trophies in all categories. Registration is $25 the day of the race. Walkers welcome.
Runners and spectators are invited to a fabulous after party:
· Cookout/refreshments served by the Elks
· Silent auction
· Live music
The RDA Fund was created in memory of Ryan Apostolakes and over the past eight years has funded daycare scholarships, donated defibrillators, sponsored lifeguard training and made donations to other local charitable organizations.
