Description

This Veterans Day weekend join the Patton Homestead, Inc. (PHI) for a 10K and Fun Run! This new 10K road race will take place along Asbury Street in Hamilton, Mass., which is designated as a national Purple Heart Trail. According to The Military Order of the Purple Heart, “The purpose of the Purple Heart Trail is to create a symbolic and honorary system of roads, highways, bridges, and other monuments that give tribute to the men and women who have been awarded the Purple Heart medal.” In honor of all our military past and present, run a 10K from the Patton Homestead, around the Sherman Tank in Patton Park, and back to the Homestead. Kids and those wishing to walk or run a shorter distance can participate in the Fun Run, a 1K loop following the wood road along the perimeter of the beautiful Patton Homestead property.

The first 100 registrants of the 10K race will receive a long sleeve technical t-shirt and all Fun Run participants will receive a ribbon. Money raised will help further the mission of the PHI.  

The Patton Homestead is the former home of two famous American generals – General George S. Patton Jr. and his son Major General George S. Patton IV, and a nationally significant historic property where families, the community and veterans enrich their lives through a myriad of events and use of the scenic open space. The Town owned and operated property is home to the Patton Family Archives, managed by the Wenham Museum, the Hamilton Historical Society, and the Homestead’s Executive Director.  The Patton Homestead, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit whose mission is to support and preserve the historic Patton Homestead as a community asset and to provide educational, recreational and cultural opportunities.
