About the Race

Starting Line at the Road Race

Race Day – August 8, 2020

Lamprey Health Care’s Annual 5K Road Race will be August 8, 2020 at the Newmarket Recreation Center. All proceeds from the race support pediatric programs at our health center. Our race features:

  • Prizes for top runners
  • Raffle prizes, including a major prize donated by Walmart Distribution Center
  • Kona Ice for all registered runners
  • Family-friendly activities for kids

To stay with the theme of helping kids, we will once again be running a food drive for the Newmarket 68 Hours of Hunger Program. All food donated will ensure Newmarket kids who receive reduced lunches also have enough to eat on the weekends.

United in Wellness Race Series

We are proud to be part of the United in Wellness Race Series sponsored by Exeter Hospital and the Seacoast United Sports Club. To register for the race series visit Exeter Hospital’s United in Wellness website. You can win great running swag just for running in your favorite local races.
