The Town of North Andover, the Merrimack Valley Striders Running Club and a host of wonderful local sponsors are proud to announce the return of this popular event. Festivities for the 28th annual running will take place in the newly revitalized North Andover Old Town Center and Common, with the finish line at its original location in front of the Museum of Printing at 800 Massachusetts Avenue. DMSE, Inc. is managing the race, and timing will be provided by Granite State Race Services using the ChronoTrack "D-Tag" system.

The fee for 5K and 10K entrants is $25.00 until July 3rd, and $30.00 on race day. The Kids 2K fun run (ages 12 and under) is $8.00 until July 3rd and $10.00 on race day. Registration and number pick-up will be conducted at the Start/Finish area on race morning between 7:00 and 8:15.
