Description

Welcome to the 48th running of the Walpole Labor Day Road Race.

After a very difficult 2020, we are very excited to evite your back to an In-Person event this year. This year’s race will be held on Monday, September 6th. This is the 48th year for the race, making it one of the oldest in the area and a wonderful Walpole tradition. 

The Herb Lewis Memorial and John D. Murphy 10K Race (6.2 miles) and “Walpole Ed” 5K Run/Walk (3.1 miles) start and finish at Walpole High School. For the last six years, the Marathon Sports Youth Mile has been a welcome addition to race day with over 100 young athletes competing. All three races are organized to benefit the Walpole High School Cross Country and Track and Field Teams. By participating in this year's event you are supporting the 200+ Walpole High School Cross Country/Track & Field athletes as they prepare for the upcoming seasons. We thank you for your generosity and continued support of the programs. 

Are you remote? Not able to join us in person? We are again offering a virtual option for the 5K and 10K.  Not certain what to choose?  Don't worry, you can switch between virtual and in-person for no cost, and no hassle.
