Description

In addition to the 'in-person' race we also offer a 'virtual' race (See https://www.bgcwestfield.org/westfieldhalf  for link to the virtual race. Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield Half Marathon, formerly the Oleksak Lumber Half Marathon, will start at 10:30 a.m. on September 11th, 2021. All runners will be treated to the beautiful landscapes of Westfield, MA located in the foothills of the Berkshires. All Half Marathon runners will receive a unique medal, short sleeve technical shirt, and access to the post-race party at Amelia Park, where results will also be posted. The post-race party will include several types of salads, hamburgers, hot dogs, veggie burgers, and music! The Westfield Half started in 1994 when a group of runners from the Empire One Running Club approached the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield with the idea of a half marathon fundraiser. Since then, we have seen the Westfield Half grow from 142 to well over 600 runners. In 2011, there were nearly 1,000 participants! We have also added a 10K, 5K run/walk race and children’s race as well. Since that first race 28 years ago, this event has raised nearly $250,000 for the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Westfield. Race maps are available on the Westfield Half website https://www.bgcwestfield.org/westfieldhalf
