PELHAM – It’s off to the races for the people of Pelham this November.
The Pelham Parks & Recreation Department will hold a 5K race on Saturday, Nov. 12 at 8 a.m. in Pelham City Park.
The race route uses all available pavement in city park according to the Pelham Parks & Recreation official website.
“The route includes closed city streets, park entrances and even the perimeter of a parking lot in order to reach the necessary distance,” Pelham Parks & Recreation’s official website said. “This course offers an advantage for participants and spectators; from one location, family and friends can see the runners start to finish race, as well as the one-mile and two-mile points of the course. Dozens of volunteers are stationed on the course to provide direction and cheers at key points.”
The Pelham Parks & Recreation 5K is also a race that offers prize money for the top three men and women who place, as well as age group awards and finisher medals.
