Not ready for the Boston Marathon? Try the Grafton Gazebo Road Race

RoadRaceStartThe Boston Marathon may be Monday but for runners who aren’t quite ready for the 26.2, there’s a shorter and more local training ground — the 24th annual Grafton Gazebo Road Race?

The 5-mile run this year is co-sponsored by a new local non-profit, Kai’s Village and will also feature a 1.5 mile family walk, along with music, refreshments, games and other activities at the Municipal Center before, during and after the race.

Kai’s Village is named for Kai Parker Rezendes, who died at the age of 2 last fall from an inoperable brain tumor. Kai’s Village provides community-based support for families facing the challenges of disability and serious illness.

The Grafton Gazebo Road Race is scheduled for Saturday, May 4 at 10 a.m. This 5-mile wheel-measured course along scenic roads starts at the Grafton Police Station and finishes at Grafton Memorial Municipal Center (rear of building), Route 122.

Registration is online here or by 8:30 a.m. the morning of the event. Sponsors and volunteers are also needed.

All proceeds will benefit the Grafton Recreation Scholarship Fund and Kai’s Village.
