Luce CAPT to host annual 5K & Fun Run May 21


The Dean S. Luce CAPT invites members of the Canton community to its 16th annual 5K and Fun Run on Sunday, May 21, at the Luce School at 45 Independence Street.

This event provides an opportunity for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities to participate in a morning of fun activities in a friendly neighborhood environment.

The day starts at 10 a.m. with the children’s fun run around the school building. Children ages 4-8 will participate in the half-mile course, while those ages 9-12 will run or walk a one-mile course. Every fun run finisher will receive a medal and a popsicle.

The timed 5K event will start at 11 a.m. The 3.1-mile, USTAD-sanctioned course starts on Independence Street, turns down Prospect to Sherman, continues right on Washington, and then travels up Pleasant Street and back to the school via Independence Street.

The course ends in the school yard with a finish line surrounded by cheering children and their families. Prizes will be awarded to top finishers in all age groups for the 5K.

All participants will enjoy a free cookout provided by Canton’s own Queen Anne’s Catering, as well as raffles, a DJ, and children’s entertainment.

“The Luce School 5K and Fun Run is a great Canton tradition and family event,” said Sarah Pirrera, committee co-chair. “The kids have a great time racing around the school for the fun run, and love getting a medal and popsicle at the finish line. The 5K is a great loop through Canton for runners and walkers of all abilities. After the races, everyone can celebrate their accomplishments with a cookout while the kids enjoy bouncy houses, face painting, and other fun activities. Come join us for a fun family day!”

Registration fees are $28 for the 5K and $13 for the Fun Run. Proceeds will benefit the Dean S. Luce CAPT.
