Raynham Training Runs
We are pleased to announce the start of weekly training runs in Raynham. Similar to the current training runs in Abington, these will be held every Saturday morning at 8:00am. The are 4 different routes from this location ranging from 3.25mi all the way up to 13.1mi. All runs start and end at the Raynham Recreation Dept parking lot (the same place as the Summer Fun Run).
For now, until we see how many people show up and if it takes off, we are asking people to carry their own water and, if at all possible, contact Sandy Allen or Dawn Foley if they plan to attend. Visit the Training page for complete information.

Boston Marathon Bus
The 12th Annual Christopher's 5k Run and Walk for Diabetes is scheduled to take place on Monday, May 26, 2014.
