The 36th Annual Pat Polletta 2 Mile Rail-Trail Race will be run at 6:30 PM on Friday, June 27, 2014 at the Winner’s Circle, just off the Route 110 exit of Route 95, in Salisbury, MA on Salisbury’s Ghost Trail, a course of packed-gravel.

New in 2013, an Adaptive Athlete race category was added!  New for 2014, is a special Amesbury student awards category!

Race proceeds to benefit Adaptive Sports Partners of the North Country, a public charity that enriches the quality of life of persons with disabilities through opportunities for year-round sport & recreation www.AdaptiveSportsPartners.org

The race is named for Pat Polletta, who spearheaded the creation of the first girls’ track program in the Merrimack Valley and coached the Amesbury High School cross-country and track teams for many years. Polletta, who was paralyzed in his later years, did not let anything get in his way; not old age, and certainly not paralysis.  He was a life-long advocate of fitness as a powerful means to build self-esteem and empower young people.
