Race History:

The Winner’s Circle Sports Bar was established in 1638 and was originally a frontier fort. A few years later a television antennae was placed on the roof and the rest is history.

Indigenous to the area at the time were the Naumkeag Indian tribe. Despite hostilities, a select group of Naumkeags were befriended and sheltered in the fort’s basement. Eventually they affectionately became known simply as the Kegs.

The Winner’s Circle Running Club was founded shortly thereafter by a small group of early settlers who were heavily inspired by the plethora of paved roadways and a large local wolf population.

In 1651, while watching Monday Night Football, local legends April Fool and Johnny “Legs” Kelly decided to put their running mettle to the test with a footrace down to the Baker’s homestead and back during halftime. Trailing by a few feet at the turnaround April shouted at Johnny to take a right. April, knowing that the fastest way back was to go left, went left. April Fool won the race and to this day it’s debated whether the race is named in her honor or because she “fooled” Johnny and won the race.

The race has been run every year since from its original location and the Kegs have shown up every year for the post race celebration.

Join us for this year’s April Fool’s Race…the Kegs will be there!
