Every year there is a 5km race that takes place in Stanstead, a simple flat loop along its historic streets and wooded paths. For the past decade, it has been organized by a dedicated local community member, Michael Sudlow. Last year, Phelps had the good fortune to receive the profits of the race as a donation; this year, we are helping Mr. Sudlow coordinate the race. Affectionately referred to as ‘The Stanstead 5km’, the event will be held on May 12th and is open to all, with running categories from youth (under 12 years old) to a master category for 80 years old and beyond. Registration runs from 8:00-9:20 AM at Sunnyside Elementary and the
start and finish line will be in front of town hall, beginning at 9:30 AM. To encourage elementary students to participate, we have also added a relay race option for the youth category as well as a ‘school trophy’ for the high school with a winning score; compiled by calculating the fastest runners and the most participants. Phelps baseball hats will be given to participating youth and the Sunnyside playground will be open to children and families (supervision provided by Phelps). Come out to Stanstead and enjoy the day outside: snacks, prizes and games for the whole family!
