About this event 
ASMG is sponsoring this race to benefit the local communities in which we live and work. Each year, we will choose different projects which benefit local not-for-profit or public agencies. Stay tuned as we nail down our plans for charitable giving!
About the Course 
Our course will be one of the fastest courses in the Pioneer Valley! If you are looking for a PR, this is your race.The start and finish will be at the Sunderland Elementary School, and will follow a loop course through local farms and neighborhoods, with a mixture of shaded streets and open streets, all with beautiful views. While many roads will be open, several will be closed throughout the race to improve your experience.Both courses are USATF certified (10K: MA17025JK, 5k: MA17026JK).
