Day of Registration and bib pickup opens at 7:00am at the Talbot Gymnasium, 40 Linden Street, Exeter, NH, and will conclude at 8:15am.  Same day registration for the Kids Fun Run is 7:00am - 7:40am.  Please come early, there will be lines and the race start will not be delayed!

5K and 10K Races will start promptly at 8:30am.  The Kids Fun Run will start promptly at 7:45am

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.  The 5K course distance will be USATF certified.

The Kids Fun Run will have 4 age group categories: 4 and under; 5-7; 8-9; 10 and up.  We are still determining Fun Run distances, but longest is just under 1/2 mile.

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

Last year we had 980 participants at our Thanks 4 Giving race!  How awesome is that?  This year we hope to top 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 0n the side of Talbot Gymnasium, 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:

  • End 68 Hours of Hunger, established in New Hampshire in 2011, whose mission puts nourishing food in the hands of school children to carry them through the weekend.
  • Girls on the Run New Hampshire, a 501(c)(3) organization since 2001, is a positive youth development program which inspires girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. More information can be found at
  • ERC running initiatives for all ages on trail and road for healthy social recreation
