There are a bunch of road races (and walks) coming up in the Franklin area.
May 11 - you have a choice between supporting the Franklin Bellingham Rail Trail Committee or the Franklin Elks. Both are fund raising for a worthy cause. You can actually support both but physically can only run one as the start this year is coincidentally at the same time for both events. Next year, the race dates will be different.
The Elks will hold their first event in what is expected to be an annual series. This event will benefit the Franklin Food Pantry and the Wounded Warrior Project. For additional information and to register visit the website http://www.franklinelks5k.com/index.html
The 3rd Annual 5K for the Franklin Bellingham Rail Trail Committee will be held to raise money for the further development of the trail. http://www.franklinbellinghamrailtrail.org/3rd-annual-road-race
May 19 - The 12th Annual Independence Day 5K and Walk, Roll, Stroll will benefit the Horace Mann Education Association. More info and to register visit their webpage http://www.hmea.org/events.html
