Men’s Run for the Women
Saturday, May 17 at the Winner’s Circle
11:30 AM start for the women
11:32 AM start for the men
The 25th Annual Evelyn’s Run for the Roses 5K Women’s Road Race plus Non-Competitive Walk will be run on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at the Winner’s Circle, just off of the Rte. 110 exit of Rte. 95, in Salisbury, MA. The women’s race will start at 11:30 AM. The race features the popular Mother/Daughter and Sister/Sister women’s team award divisions. As in the past, profits and donations from the race will benefit A Safe Place, Inc. (Portsmouth, NH) and the Jeanne Geiger Women’s Crisis Center (Newburyport, MA).
The Men’s Run for the Women will be run in chase format. Men run the same 5K course but with the start delayed by 2 minutes and 30 seconds. Women and men (with a 2:30 minute penalty) compete for the same overall and age division awards. This new aspect was introduced into the event as a fun way for men to help raise money for the same great causes. Last year the gap was 3:00 and the women trashed the men in all age divisions!
$100 CASH PRIZE to the first overall finisher… Regardless of gender! The Chase format is sure to make this interesting!!
NEW THIS YEAR … Register as a co-ed couples team! The Chase is on for 2014! The 2 co-ed teams with the lowest combined times will win this exciting new category.
The Run for the Roses is the second race of the WCRC Speed Series 4-3-2-1. The four race series begins at the end of March at the April Fool’s 4 Mile Race, continues in June with the Pat Polletta 2 Mile Race, and finishes in August at the High Street Mile. In fact, you can register for all four of these WCRC races at once by registering for the Speed Series – “It’s all about running faster.”
