The Annual Newtown Road Race 5K and Kids Run, presented by Nike, will take place at Dickinson Park at 9 am on Saturday, August 31.
Benefiting Newtown Youth and Family Services, this race draws 500-600 runners plus another 200 children in the fun run and race organizers are expecting a larger than usual turnout this year. The gently rolling course begins and ends at Dickinson Park and incorporates both paved and dirt roads. T-shirts will be provided to the first 1,000 registered runners in the 5K and the first 250 children in the Kids Run. This is a volunteer effort and all proceeds will be used by Newtown Youth and Family Services to underwrite counseling and youth programming efforts.
