Upton – The annual fall 5K Run to Remember, organized by the Upton VFW Post #5594, will again coincide with Upton’s Heritage Day Saturday, Oct. 5, at 9 a.m. at the post, 1 Milford St. (Route 140).

Each runner wears the name of one or more veterans, living or deceased, who they choose to honor. For those who do not already have a name to honor, a list of names will be available. Those who cannot run and would like a certain veteran remembered at the race may contact the post and have the name added to the list.

A new addition to this year’s event will be the Kids’ Run following the 5K race. The quarter-mile race for kids 6 and under will be held at the baseball field behind the VFW post. All children who participate will receive a medal.

The entry price is $15 prior to race day; $20 at the event. Runners may register online at www.coolrunning.com or mail in a form available at the post and at sponsors’ locations throughout town. The Kids’ Run will be $5 per child. A limited quantity of youth and adult royal blue dri-fit tech shirts will be for sale the day of the event. The cost is $15, cash only.
