Beginners and veteran runners alike will enjoy competing on the beautiful Pennsy Trail. Starting at the heart of downtown Greenfield at the Sister Cities Park, the course is straight out and back and is relatively flat. Located on the roadbed of the old Pennsylvania Railroad much of the trail is lined by trees and shrubs, helping cool the August heat.
This is a timed race. Times will be available after the race at www.carpevita.org
Your participation will help support the Sister Cities of Greenfield organization, which will in turn provide travel and hosting experiences for Greenfield students, their teachers, and their parents.
For 26 years, Sister Cities of Greenfield has been sending delegations of students and teachers to our Sister City, Kakuda, Japan. Thanks to generous support from the city, from Keihin Corporation, and from activities like the 5K Walk/Run, students have been able to travel to Kakuda for much less than the actual cost of airfare and lodging. Likewise, Sister Cities of Greenfield has hosted dozens of Japanese student delegations. These exchanges have enabled hundreds of individuals to personally appreciate the fact that different races and nationalities don't matter much when true friendship develop.
