2016 marks the seventh year of the SMAC Road Race Series, coming back better than ever, with a new finale race!

What is it?  a sampling of 15 fun and challenging road races

Where is it?  across Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin counties, from Greenfield to Monson.

When is it?  beginning in March and going through November

Why?  Some of us run for the sake of competition, others just to participate. Some of us enjoy the sportsmanship, some do it just for fun. This series has been put together with all of us in mind, in the hopes that all of us will have a reason to give it a try.

And if that is not enough, how about this?

  • Awards will be given to all runners who complete at least 9 of the races in the series, with extra additional special awards for anyone who completes the entire series of 15 races.
  • Awards for top scorers.
  • All to be awarded at an end-of-series recognition ceremony.
