Get Your Capes Ready!
The theme for National Health Center Week is Celebrating Health Centers: Home of America’s Health Care Heroes. We had some very good looking heroes at our race. More pictures coming soon.
About Our Race
For 27 years proceeds from the Lamprey Health Care Annual 5K Road Race have been supporting programs and services at the health center. In recent years these funds have been dedicated to supporting programs for children. This year’s race will support the healthy development of pediatric patients with funding dedicated to the Reach Out and Read Early Literacy Program, the School Based Dental Program and Baby Steps, an Early Childhood Development & Screening Program. You can run with a light step knowing your registration fees will be helping kids our community.
Due to construction at the Jr/Sr High School this year’s race will begin and end at the Lamprey Health Care office. The course will stick very close to our original course on Route 152 and Packers Falls Road. Maps will be available at the race.
The Kona Ice truck has been such a hit we’ve decided to make it a permanent feature of our race. Pre-registered runners will receive a ticket for a free Kona Ice. There will be some additional tickets available for same day registrations on a first come first serve basis. Friends, family and spectators can purchase an ice directly from the Kona Ice Truck.
Awards & Raffles
Awards are given to top runners by age category. All runners are entered into a raffle for a major prize donated by Walmart Distribution Center in Raymond, NH. This year’s raffle prize is a Yuneec Bluetooth Controlled Drone with 4K resolution video, 13MP still images and 720 HD live view. All runners are entered to win the raffle but must be present at the time of the drawing.
You spoke and we listened. The 5K for Kids Race now features technical shirts! In order to guarantee a t-shirt in your size you must register in advance. We cannot guarantee sizes or that supplies will last for same day registrations. So the moral of this story is…Register Early!
