2017 Mum-A-Thon Road Race
This year’s Mum-A-Thon Road race will take place on Sunday October 22nd 2017. We will start and finish the race at St. Paul Catholic High School 1001 Stafford Ave. Bristol CT. It consists of two events; an 8K competitive Road race and a 5K family fun walk. The 8K race will kick off at 10:00am while the 5K walk will start ten minutes later at 10:10am. Our charity for this year’s event is the Veterans Strong Community Center located at 111 N. Main St., Bristol CT.
This event has changed through the years and as such we have added a separate walk designed for families and children. As part of this, we have added a Halloween theme to it so all participants can come in costume.
We offer the ability for race sponsors and civic organizations to set up on the walk route to hand out candy to the children creating a “trick or treat” aspect to the event. We also offer locations on the walk route to city department heads and local politicians as this is a community based event.
Additionally, we invite runners, walkers and the community to join us on Saturday, October 21st for a pre-race Pasta Dinner. The dinner is being held from 5 – 8 pm at the American Legion Seicheprey Post 2 on Hooker Court in Bristol. Tickets are $10 (ages 14 and up; $5 (ages 5 – 13) and children 4 and under are free. Advanced purchase is suggested and tickets can be purchased through the Veterans Strong Community Center, 111 North Main Street, Bristol, CT 06010, or calling 860-584-6258.
Look forward to seeing you there and joining us for our 48th year!
