About this event:
The race is unlike any other race around, our race day focus is not simply on the race itself, nor is it the focus on the charitable donations. It is more about the community and bringing the city and surrounding towns together as we celebrate the spirit of the day – block party style! Everyone is invited to join us at the finish line for a free BBQ, live music, beverages, clowns, moonwalk, massages, a silent auction and a post race party at (TBA) and so much more.
We have been told by many that our race kick off is a sight to behold, which includes a performance by the Worcester Firefighter Pipes and Drums. The race itself starts and ends at Institute Park running under two aerial ladder trucks draping the American Flag. The course is a figure 8 that runs by the Grove Street Fire Station and downtown Worcester. Our participants span from the area’s best athletes and most competitive runners to those who casually can enjoy walking and reflecting on the moment. The memory of our fallen brothers (Paul, Jay, Jerry, Joe, Tom, Tim, and Jon) will never die as long as we keep this event going. With the help of our runners / walkers and sponsors it will continue to live on.
So please help the WFD6K continue to give back to the Worcester community and local nonprofit charities by joining us again this year. As always thank you for your consideration and support.
