The 28th Annual Evelyn’s Run for the Roses 5K Women’s Road Race plus Non-Competitive Walk will be run on Friday, May 5, 2017 at the Winner’s Circle, just off of the Rte. 110 exit of Rte. 95, in Salisbury, MA. The race will start at 6:30 PM. 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 the Jeanne Geiger Women’s Crisis Center (Newburyport, MA). This year, the race will also benefit Gene Therapy and Research through Cure CMT4J. Both organizations will gladly accept donations through their websites. To donate directly, click on either link.
The Men’s Run for the Women: Men race in solidarity with the women on the same 5K course but finishing times are adjusted by 12% (the statistical difference between genders at 5K distance) making the results gender neutral. Women and men compete for the same overall and age division awards. This new aspect was introduced into the event as a fun way for men to show their support, promote awareness and help raise money for the same great causes.
$100 CASH PRIZE to the fastest overall time…that includes the women’s 12% bonus! This format levels the playing field and it sure makes things interesting!!
Register as a co-ed couples team! The 2 registered co-ed teams with the lowest combined times will win this exciting new category.
