ABOUT OUR RACE
For 26 years proceeds from the Lamprey Health Care Annual 5K Road Race have been supporting programs and services at the health center.
This year’s race will support programs dedicated to the healthy development of pediatric patients, such as the Reach Out and Read Early Literacy Program, the School Based Dental Program and Baby Steps, an Early Childhood Development Screening Program.
Our race is part of the United in Wellness Road Race Series sponsored by Exeter Hospital and Seacoast United Sports Club. Registration in the race series is free. Participants must register for individually for each race. Details and links to all the races in the series are available at United in Wellness.
As part of our commitment to the community we will be collecting donations for the End 68 Hours of Hunger Program. Please take a look at the list of accepted food donations and consider making a contribution. All runners who make a donation will receive a free grocery tote.
We invite you to race with us and our race partners for a healthier Seacoast community.
Last year we had to change the course due to construction on our traditional route. For 2017 we will be running our traditional route around the Newmarket Elementary school and down Packers Falls Road.
We understand that some people enjoyed the 2016 alternate course, however our traditional course is easier to manage traffic and ensures the safety of our runners.
You spoke and we listened. Our race now features technical t-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 the story is….Register Early!
BIB PICK UP
We do not have advance bib-pick up. Sorry, but we are busy seeing patients during the week. All bib pick ups will be the day of the race. Bibs can be picked up at the Newmarket Recreation Center the morning of the race starting at 7:00 am.
AWARDS & RAFFLES
Awards are given to top runners by age category. All runners are entered into a raffle for a major prize which is donated by a local merchant. Last year’s prize was a Fuji Finepix XP95 Digital Camera generously donated by the Walmart Distribution Center in Raymond. Check back for details on the 2017 raffle prize.
Parking at the Newmarket Recreation Center is limited to those with a handicap permit. All other runners and spectators should park at the Newmarket High School, located at 213 S. Main Street, right next to the health center. Access to the Newmarket Recreation Center is along a path near the back of the school parking lot.
