Thanks For Giving 5k, 10k and Kids Fun Runs (14 and under)
Thursday, November 23, 2017

Start your Thanksgiving morning off right with the Southern District YMCA and Exeter Run Club’s 2nd annual ‘Thanks for Giving’ 5K and 10K family run/walk and kids fun runs. All races except for the fun runs will be chip timed this year! Thank you to Granite State Timing for their timing services

This race will be the final race in the Exeter Health Resources' United for Wellness Road Race Series. 

Register before 11:59 pm on 11/5/17 to receive a t-shirt with registration.  Limited supplies of t-shirts will be available at the event for purchase. Please arrive early if you would like to purchase a t-shirt!

Bib Pickup for pre-registered runners will be held at George and Phillips in downtown Exeter on Wednesday, 11/22 from 3-6 pm. Come Wednesday to get your bib, avoid race day lines and get in some holiday shopping for yourself and family with 10% off your entire purchase when you show your bib during bib pickup from 3-6 pm!

Online Registration closes at NOON on Tuesday, 11/22. Prices will increase $5 per category for day of registration. CASH AND CHECK ONLY accepted at day of registration.

Day of Registration and bib pickup opens at 7:00am at the Exeter YMCA, 56 Linden Street, Exeter, NH. Please come early, there will be lines!

Kid's Fun Runs (14 and under) will start at 7:45 am. No runner is too small! These runs will include a 4 and under category!

Race will start  promptly at 8:30am. 10K runners will do a double loop of the 5K course.

Course will run through the beautiful community of Exeter, NH. This will be a flat and fast course and especially encouraging for families to participate.

Friends and family can volunteer on the race course for added giving! Thank you!

We will have 1000+ participants at our Thanks-For-Giving race! How awesome is that? We ARE a dog-friendly race and do encourage your furry companions to tag along; however, it will be VERY crowded on race day. Dogs MUST be kept on a leash at all times and if your pup gets easily overwhelmed in noisy settings, with a lot of other people, or around other dogs, this might not be the best race for them! We ask that you keep your pups out of the main area in front of the YMCA building, and that you start your walk or run toward the back of the crowd. Thank you for helping us keep all of our racers, human and pet, safe!

Race proceeds will benefit:

  • YMCA healthy living programs where the whole person is nurtured to their full potential;
  • ERC running initiatives for all ages on trail and road for healthy social recreation; and
  • Southeast Land Trust of New Hampshire (SELT) whose mission protects and sustains our community’s land for clean water, outdoor recreation, fresh food, wildlife and healthy forests.

This event would not be possible without the support of our community sponsors. Please join us in thanking them for their generosity!
