Walk/RunTo Benefit Middleboro-based School on May 3

The Samuel Fuller School is hosting a 5k walk/run and a 10k run at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 3, 2008. The race celebrates the opening of the new Samuel Fuller School and also serves as a fundraiser for scholarships. Both the 5k and 10k have the same start and finish: the pastoral First Congregational meeting house which was built in 1828 and has been newly refurbished this past year.
For those avid – or not so avid - runners out there, this is a diverse and exciting course that begins and ends at the First Congregational Church in Middleboro and winds through some beautiful woodlands. The race is a true cross country course that runs largely through the Pratt Farm in town. It is a great chance to add a little diversity to your spring/summer running schedule or to just get outside and enjoy the day while supporting a worthy cause.
Food and live music will be at the finish line. The board of the school will be available after the race to share information about the school and show off their model classroom.
The fee to register is $18 for the 5K and $20 for the 10K. Medals will be awarded to the top three finishers in several age brackets for men and women.
To pre-register for the race log on to or register in person at 9 a.m. on May 3.
The 5K and 10K races are sponsored by: Cranberry Chiropractic of Middleborough; Dr. Stephen Couet of East Grove Family Dental in Middleborough; Hometown Mortgage of Middleborough; R. A. Jackson Plumbing & Heating of Middleborough; Shotgunflat Creative Agency of Middleborough; Topnotch Design Studio in Easton and Winberg's True Value in Lakeville.
