Details: What better way to spend a fall October morning post race, than in a cozy sweatshirt post run or walk munching on something sweet and savory? Sweets N’ Sweats will provide an opportunity to participate in a non-competitive, family style event, with a focus on FUN! This year we’ve changed the course to a beautiful trail run or walk on the Batchelder Trail 1.6 mile loop. Upon finishing, you’ll choose from a variety of mouthwatering sweets to indulge in from an array of participating sponsors providing chocolates, popcorn, cookies, donuts, and ice-cream.
Course: Participants will have an opportunity to complete 1 loop resulting in just over 1.6 miles or 2 loops for 3.2 miles. We welcome dogs and will offer a category for first place Trail Wagger. Unfortunately, due to the terrain, strollers are not permitted.
Kids Fun Run: Kids 7 and under are welcome to participate in a pre-race FUN SPRINT that will take place in the parking lot of Lake Gardner. This will take place at 9:45am right before the main event. All kids will receive a race bib and a finishers medal.
Awards: Top 3 overall male/female finishers, top 3 male/female under 15, and top trail wagger.
Beneficiary: 100% net proceeds will be allocated to the Amesbury Youth Recreation Dept (scholarships for new programs)
