Nashoba Valley Medical Center’s 7th Annual Road Race is a day filled with activities, food, and fun for the whole family.
All proceeds from the event will benefit Loaves & Fishes, a non-profit organization that provides food and temporary support services to residents of Ayer, Devens, Groton, Harvard, Littleton, and Shirley.
The Hunger Run 5K, which is professionally timed by Wilbur Race Systems and certified by USA Track and Field, will begin at Nashoba Valley Medical Center at 11 a.m. and travel along the scenic back roads of Ayer and Groton. Walkers are also welcome to participate in the race. In addition to the Hunger Run, children are encouraged to dress in their favorite Halloween costumes (optional) and enjoy the “Harvest Half Mile Run.”

The cost to register for the 5K race is $20 in advance, $5 for the Kids Half Mile Run and $10 for 5K walkers. Each runner should bring one, non-perishable food item to be donated to Loaves & Fishes.
