Apple Harvest Ramble – 09/27/2014 (Saturday)

Saturday, 9/27/2014, 9am

Description:

The Apple Harvest Ramble 10miler and 5miler are run at the beginning of the fall foliage and the peak of the apple picking season. The challenging course runs by some of the most magnificent views of the Nashoba Valley.

The 10miler has been a New England tradition for many years. To accommodate those runners wanting to run a shorter race, we have added a 5miler. We hope that this will satisfy both groups of runners.

Both courses will start start at the same time (9am!) on Elm Street just off the Harvard Common (short walk from registration) and finish in front of the Harvard Elementary School.

Awards and Prizes:

Again, this year, we will be implementing our “drive through” awards ceremony. Well, there isn’t actually a ceremony but runners can pick up the awards by stopping at the awards table once the results have been posted. We have found very limited participation in the awards ceremony in the last few years and want the runners to receive their awards. This is a new concept this year and we hope that it is well received. It is really for the benefit of our runners as every year we have many, many unclaimed awards. This process was well received at last years event.

Awards available to top finishers in each division. The divisions go 3-deep in the 10-mile race and 2-deep in the 5-mile event.
Awards to Top Harvard Resident finishers in each division.

** Runners are eligible for only one award. Runners qualifying for more than one award will get the higher award and the next finishers in that category will be moved up to fill the category.

Proceeds:

Proceeds from this race to benefit local charities.

Refreshments:

Refreshments following the race at Bromfield High School.
