20th Annual Father's Day Road Race

Start Father’s Day off on the right foot by participating in the Museum’s Annual Road Race or Fun Walk. Whether you walk or run, you’ll enjoy the gently looping course that begins on Main Street and winds through the tree-lined streets of historic North Easton Village, past H.H. Richardson buildings and F.L. Olmsted landscapes. The picturesque course is mostly flat, with a few rolling hills.

T-shirts will be given to all runners who pre-register by June 3rd.
*For your safety and the safety of others, runners with strollers will start separately at the head of each event.   They will be allowed in the walk only. The Museum offers free childcare for pre-registered runners.
Registration fee: $25 Pre-registration,  $30 day of the race
For Walkers: A 5K non-competitive  course for walkers. Parents, put the  kids in a stroller and come have fun celebrating families! Walk for just $10. Sorry, no t-shirts!
Cash Prizes: Cash prizes of $100, $50, and $25 will be awarded to the top 3 overall male and female runners in each race!

A festive post-race party plus over 40 raffle prizes and an awards ceremony follows the finish. Results are posted immediately following the race.
