Register, Register, Register! Please…..

Guess what the next holiday is?  LABOR DAY!!!!  And what does Labor Day bring?  The 21st Annual St. Charles 5K of course!  132 of you have already registered – Thank You!  For those of you who haven’t – what are you waiting for?  Not that I want to rush summer but September 4th will be here before you know it and I wouldn’t want you to miss out on the most fabulous, fun, family friendly race of the year!

Tommie and his Applebee’s crew will be there cooking up delicious hamburgers and hot dogs and we always have lots of bagels, donuts, apples and much more.  Planet Fitness is generously donating our water again this year (Thank You PF!).  There will be crafts for the kids, tons of raffles for young and old alike and a free Kids Fun Run.

This year only the first 600 registered participants get free t-shirts and we usually have that in pre-registrations. Chances are we will not have this year’s t-shirts available on race day for same day registrations.

Pre- registration 13 and over $20 (must pre-register by 11:00 p.m. on 8/31/2017)

Same Day Registration 12 and over $30

12 and under always race for $10

Only 4 Months Away….

Can you believe that the 5k is only 4 months away?  Thank you to the 62 participants that registered early!  With all of this rainy and chilly weather I can’t help but look forward to a nice warm summer day.  But every website I look at says that 55-60 degrees and overcast is good running weather for a 5k.  Do you agree?  If that is the case, I guess we have been experiencing several days of optimal running weather.  I really would like a few warm, sunny days though….

Don’t for get to register!  Click here to register on line or print the registration form and mail it in.

130 Miles or 3.1?

Road for Hope – that’s what 50 St. Anselm College Students are doing, walking 130 miles from Lewiston, ME to St. A’s.

The Road for Hope is based on the idea that by simply walking through the countryside we can change the world for the better.  The Road for Hope seeks to provide funds for those in need, strengthen the bonds in our communities, and rekindle the belief that every footstep makes a difference.

In a time when most of us are speeding through life, the Road for Hope speaks to the value and joy of a slow walk.  It is in this spirit that the students and staff of Saint Anselm College, and many others along the way, unite to walk a Road for Hope.” (taken from )


They are walking 150 miles, we are just asking you to walk or run 3.1 miles?  What do you say?  Will you join us?  Click here to register.  Pre-registration closes on September 1st at 9:00 p.m.  Same day registration is $30.

Follow the Road for Hope blog.
