RACE MOVED to 12pm
NEW START LOCATION
For the safety of the runners (and their fans!), we are delaying the start time and start location of the Little Manchester Road Race to ensure a course that is free of snow and ice.
The new start time is 12pm. The location is still Charter Oak Park, but we will move the race start/finish to the asphalt parking lot by the basketball courts.
A map with the location of check-in at Bennett Academy as well as the the location of the race start/finish (and the walkway to use to get to the start) is shown below. This distance from the Bennett Academy to the start/finish via the walkway is about 1/2 mile.
Because check-in will take place during peak hours for the Manchester Road Race expo, it is expected to be more crowded than usual - plus, the walk over to the start is a little longer. As such, we recommend picking up your kids' race bib and sweatshirt by 11am.
There is no check-in at the start of the race -- just in the Cone Gym of Bennett Academy
The expo does open at 9am so you can come extra early and visit with the vendors. Fleet Feet will be hosting a "garage sale" and ECHN will be giving registered LMRR runners a free pair of mittens!
Don't forget to bring your 2 can goods for the Manchester Food Bank - and if you see members of the Manchester Public Works Dept, please tell them THANK YOU for working to make sure we can host the race this year.
