Official Website


We are postponing the Inaugural Salute The Troops 4 mile and 7 mile Memorial Day Weekend road races to 2022!! 
With Commonwealth allowing in person road races in MA starting on May 10, 2021 there's just not enough time to properly promote and advertise a BRAND NEW event and give it a chance to be a well attended event. 

Racing Categories: 4 Mile | 7 Mile | Virtual **Option to RUCK either distance

Packet Pickup/Race Day Reg: Will open at 7:00AM on Sunday morning at race site. (No pre-race packet pickup unless otherwise noted)

Virtual Option: We learned a lot from the 2020 pandemic, one of which being the limitless virtual world, where scheduling conflicts and traveling are no longer a problem. You'll have all weekend to complete your preferred distance while receiving all the glory including all the swag and an even an opportunity to submit your race results. Unfortunately you won't be eligible for awards but you will have the opportunity to download a finishers certificate upon completion. 

Team/Club/Group Category: Own a business? Part of a running club? This is an easy and fun way to recruit your friends. Teams must consist of at least 2+ people. Prizes will be awarded for the largest & fastest team.
