On New Year’s Day, shake off the cob webs from ringing in the New Year at the 2019 New Year’s Classic in Norfolk, Massachusetts.
The Wrentham Lions Club hosts the annual New Year’s Classic 5K and this year will be the 19th running of the race. All proceeds from the race benefits the Wrentham Lions Club cwhich along with contributing to many local charities also has a focus on helping the visually impaired after being challenged by Helen Keller to become the “Knights of the Blind.”
The Eagle Brook Saloon has been the host of the race for last several years and the Wrentham Lions Club is just one of many local charities supported by the Eagle Brook.
The race itself is a fun, low-key 5K that includes a hearty and delicious breakfast from The Eagle Brook Saloon after the race and a pair of running gloves or a buff. Runners can register online by clicking here and will join Mrs. Running Griffin and me at the starting line to tackle the 2019 year with a road race hours after the ball has dropped!
Look forward to having many of The Running Griffin readers join me in Norfolk on New Year’s Day for the New Year’s Classic 5K. Let’s start off the new year on the right foot and help support the great work done by the Wrentham Lions Club!
