Here is a race you probably haven't done before. Participants will run a 1-mile race around the track. Immediately(ish) after, participants will run another 1-mile race. The results will be based on how close your pace was to your first mile (based on the number of seconds differential). Come to Cromwell High School and run 2 miles around the track as fast as you can for a great cause. All proceeds from this race will be donated to Team for Kids (a NYC Marathon charity partner), Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and The Hole in the Wall Gang in Ashford, CT. If you are unfamiliar with these organizations, please visit their websites and read up. They are phenomenal organizations that do great, great work.
Oh, the costume part? Well it will be post-Thanksgiving, so dress up in your holiday best!
