The first weekend in May always brings one of the best long-standing spring events in Canton MA.
The 13th Annual Luce School 5 K Fun Run/Walk and Childrens Fun Run will be held on Sunday, May 4, 2014, starting at 10:00 am at the Luce Elementary School in Canton MA.
This event is run by and for the benefit of the Dean S. Luce School Canton Association of Parents and Teachers (CAPT) but is really an event for the entire Canton MA community.
I remember being at the CAPT meeting when the first Fun Run was proposed! It was originally the idea of a couple of teachers who came to the CAPT to promote it as a fun event and not necessarily a fundraiser. It has turned into a good fundraiser and a fun annual event in the Town of Canton.
The event kicks off at 10:00 am with the half-mile childrens run for ages 4-8, followed by a mile childrens run for ages 9-12. The big event, the 5K run for all ages, starts at 11:00 am. All the children in the childrens run receive a medal. There are trophies for the first, second and third place winners in all age categories.
While the races are going on, there is face painting, tattoos and bouncy houses to entertain the kids. There is also a free cookout of hamburgers and hot dogs during and after the big race. There are also usually a great variety of baskets available for raffle. In addition, there is professional timing with splits and a computerized finish line. The event draws runners from all around Canton and the surrounding areas.
The Fun Run is an annual feel-good community event that promotes health, fitness and good fun.
