The Manchester Road Race will return for its 80th year on Thanksgiving Day. With over 7,000 runners already registered, it's always an event for the books, with participants and supporters gathering together for a day of friendly competition and celebration. The course is just under 5 miles and starts and ends on Main Street with a loop around town. Registrations are still being accepted online and are only $32. You can’t register the day of the race, so make sure you do it online or during walk-in registration at the Sports Expo the weekend before the race. Visit their website for more details.
For those looking to be a little more competitive, they will be giving awards for a variety of different groups, from age groups to the top 25 overall, as well as special prizes honoring former runners who aren’t here with us today. It's a truly feel-good event, whether you’re running or supporting. And you'll definitely earn that second helping of pumpkin pie!
