REGISTRATION OPENS FOR 2016 NEWTON 10K
City’s Only 10K Race Will Benefit DREAMFAR High School Marathon
Fattman Productions, a strategic planning, marketing and promotions company, today announced that the 2016 Newton 10K will be held on Sunday, June 5, 2016, beginning at 8 AM. The city’s only 10K event will draw more than 600 runners who will race through Newton, covering parts of the Boston Marathon course, and winding through some of the city’s most beautiful and historic areas. The race is a community and family event with both adults and school-aged kids encouraged to participate. Proceeds from the race will benefit DREAMFAR High School Marathon. Runners can sign up here to participate in the race.
Proceeds from the Newton 10K will benefit DREAMFAR High School Marathon, a non-profit organization that challenges kids to reach their full potential – emotionally, socially and physically – through a mentor-supported marathon training program.
Race organizers are encouraging runners from all Newton schools to register and train for the event. The Newton school with the most registered student runners will receive a $750 prize awarded from Fattman Productions to the school’s PTO. For more information on how to register, visit here.
The race starts and finishes at the Horace Mann Elementary School, 687 Watertown Street, Newtonville, MA, and covers many historic and scenic Newton streets.
