A 20-year Weston tradition continues on Saturday, May 25, when hundreds of runners, walkers, and strollers take to the streets at 8:30 a.m. for the Weston Memorial Day 5K Road Race.
The USATF-certified course begins on School Road and winds through Lords Highway and Old Hyde and Norfield roads, before looping back to finish at the high school.
The event is the single largest fund-raiser for the Weston High School PTO.
In addition to winners in various age categories, cash prizes are awarded to the top overall finishers, including for the first ($100), second ($50), and third ($25) male and female finishers overall.
A one-mile Kids Fun Run for students in kindergarten through fifth grade will begin at 8 a.m. It features a 440-meter run (one lap of the high school track), a one-mile run (four laps), and a 100-meter sprint and 110-yard dash.
Refreshments will be provided as well as free race T-shirts for the first 500 registrants.
Registration may be done online at weston5k.com, in person the day of the race or by mail. Mailed registration forms must be postmarked by May 19.
The fee is $20 through May 22. It is $30 May 23 and 24 from 3 to 6 p.m. in the Weston High School cafeteria and on race day from 7 to 8 a.m.
