MARLBOROUGH – The sixth annual Remembering Our Angels 5K Run/Walk will take place on Saturday, May 13, at 10 a.m. at the Loyal Order of Moose Lodge, 57 Fitchburg St.

The route will utilize the Assabet River Trail. Amenities will include water stations, restrooms and raffles.

Participants should park at Assabet Valley High School at 215 Fitchburg St. There will be a shuttle bus transporting participants back and forth from the Moose Lodge.

Entry fee for the in-person and virtual races will be $30, which includes a T-shirt; for those entering the virtual event and not wishing a T-shirt, the fee will be $25.

Participants who register by the T-shirt deadline of April 21 will receive a tech race shirt.

Awards will be given to the top overall male and female finishers, and top male and female finishers for each age group (18 and under; 19-29; 30-39; 40-49; 50-59; 60 and older).

There will also be a trophy for the team with the most runners/walkers participating in the race.

After the race, there will be an after party with free food and music.

Proceeds will benefit Team Sharing Inc, a national nonprofit that offers support to families who have lost a child to substance use disorder (SUD). It was founded by Marlborough resident Cheryl Juaire, who lost two sons to SUD: Corey Merrill at age 23 in 2011 and Sean Merrill at 42 in 2021.

If the race is canceled or rescheduled due to weather or other unforeseen event, all registration fees from runners and walkers who cannot participate will be donated to Team Sharing. There will be no refunds.

Sponsorship opportunities range from $250 to $2,500+ with different levels of runner/walker interaction and an opportunity to have a lawn sign displayed in front of the Moose Lodge during the race. Contact the race director for more information.
