Wampanoag Road Runners Flat 5K

OFTMlogo2016

What a difference a week can make! Last week it was -4F as I raced the Paddy Kelly Road Race in Brockton, Massachusetts and this morning it was in the 50’s as I made my way to Foxboro, Massachusetts for the Wampanoag Road Runners Flat 5K. The Wamps put on this race and the Old Fashioned Ten Miler on the same day and though in the past I have taken part in the Old Fashioned Ten Miler a busy personal calendar today had me sign up for the 5K race instead this year.

The race started about five minutes after the 10 miler did and featured far less runners than the 10 miler does. The 5K race loops through some residential neighborhoods of Foxboro and is a rather flat course as the name suggests. In the second mile some beautiful older homes lined both sides of the race course and made for some nice architecture to look at as we ran along.

The course was well marked with mile markers and volunteers at each turn and a the race schwag included some snacks and Darn Tough socks. This race is a real gem particularly since it is held in February when races can be tough to find. The race organizers lucked out this year with ideal weather and it was a great day for running.

I finished today’s race with a time of 24:35, good for 7:54/miles.
