Mattapoisett Road Race extends signup period
MATTAPOISETT — The town’s Road Race has extended the signup period for its modified road race by a month from June 1 to July 1.
Although there will be no in-person race this year, the Road Race committee encourages runners to get out and exercise while supporting the Class of 2020.
Funds from the road race normally go towards members of the graduating class as stipends for college. The road race planning committee would like to continue supporting the seniors this year, especially with the current uncertainty caused by coronavirus.
So, it will host a virtual race instead. Participants can register online, and then run 5 miles anytime between June 26 and July 2 at a location of their choice. The registration or donation fee will be $25.
Runners who would like a Mattapoisett Road Race t-shirt can pay an extra $15, to have it mailed to them. Race organizers request that runners take a photo of themselves during the run for them to put on the race website. To register or learn more information, visit http://www.mattapoisettroadrace.com/
