On Your Mark, Get Set, Get Ready for the
First Annual Holliston Newcomers Club 10K Road Race
May 15, 2011

HOLLISTON, MA (February 15, 2011)
In conjunction with local area sponsors, the Holliston Newcomers Club (HNC) is announcing its first annual 10K Road Race on May 15, 2011.  This race will become the major spring fundraiser event for HNC and take the place of the previously popular spring House Tours.  Though the Tours were well attended, HNC decided to change direction and draw a crowd of runners and their cheering sections.

The profits from this event will fund the HNC’s annual grant awards.  Each year, the Holliston Newcomers Club provides over $20,000 in grants to local organizations that give back to the community.  Over the years, grants have been used to support the Holliston Pantry Shelf, Senior Center, Police and Fire Departments, and Council for the Arts, among many others.

As the spring road race season approaches with many 5K races to choose from, the HNC 10K is offering a longer distance alternative to attract runners looking for a certified course through scenic Holliston. 

The road race is set for Sunday, May 15, 2011, with a 9:00 a.m. start time.  The race will be promoted in local media outlets and running publications.  The winner of a raffle for a Trek 700 Hybrid Bicycle will be drawn following the race.
