Don Maynard Memorial 5-Miler
September 22, 2012, 9:30 a.m., Greenfield, Mass.
The Don Maynard Road Race is organized to honor the memory of Don Maynard, a beloved family member and friend that left us to soon. In his memory, the proceeds of the race go to support two high school scholarships given to public high school seniors from Franklin County, Mass.
The course begins by the Green River and continues through the meadows of Greenfield, then loops around toward Greenfield Community College. The course finishes with the last mile covering the new Greenfield bike path, again along the Green River.
There's also a 3-mile walk -- a loop of the bike path.
Be sure to take a dip in the river to cool off after the race. The first 100 entrants receive a performance shirt. There will be a huge free raffle. Almost everyone goes home with something.
Cost: $18 preregistration for 5-mile run or $12 for the 3-mile walk; $20 or $14 on race day.
