Cider Mill 5k

Race begins at 10:30 a.m.

Our 5K race completes the morning events. Runners are treated to the beauty of New England in fall as they travel the race route.

Cash awards to the top three male/female finishers (overall), and trophies to division winners.

“The 5-K is the most popular race distance in America, the logical first race distance for most recreational runners, and a distance considered critically important even by Olympic marathoners. What more could you ask for in a race?” 
~Mark Bloom

Race Route

The race begins on Cider Mill Road, just past Crandall Park, and travels up Grant Hill Road. The route turns left onto Gehring Road Extension, and then left again onto Cider Mill Road, to return back to the park. The race begins flat, and then is followed with a series of rolling hills to tackle early on. Immediately following are gentle grades and down slopes that make for a safe, fast course.
