The Annual 5K walk run to benefit Lorraine’s will get an overhaul this year. After participant feedback, Lorraine’s has moved the race to the cooler weather of October 16th as well as holding the race on a Sunday as has been done in the past. The race will also feature family-friendly activities and a full BBQ. A special musical performance by “The Goat Ropers” will be featured.
Unlike last year’s “Reach the Beach” race, runners will run through a scenic trail into Chicopee State Park, but will not be running on the beach this year. It’s important to note that the race DOES NOT start at Chicopee State Park, but at Williams Family Park, which is located to the left of Williams Distributing (880 Burnett Road) in Chicopee.
This year’s Harvest 5k Run & Walk is being sponsored by Laporte Shea & Borys Insurance Agency, a long-time supporter of the kitchen.
