Somerville laces up its sneakers in support of community safety

July 28, 2017 by  

Somerville is home to the state’s oldest rescue squad, which provides rescue and other emergency help, and the public is invited to come to an event that will show it has both the community’s financial and emotional support.

The first ever annual obstacle course to be held in the area has been dubbed “the Somerville Challenge”. It will follow a 5-kilometer route through Peters Brook Greenway, and as the competitors follow the course, they will be met with specially designed obstacles along the way. Members of the public who are interested in participating can do so on their own or as a part of a team with up to 20 people.

According to the organizers, the race has been designed to be both challenging and fun. As an added incentive to join in the experience, those who do will receive an exclusive special entry fee to attend Oktoberfest. An area printer can supply everything from custom designed pop up banners to race bibs, t-shirts for and award certificates for the runners who participate in a fundraiser such as this.

This run, which will help the Somerville Rescue Squad continue to provide volunteer emergency services to the community, has been planned for September 30th. Check in will start at 7:00 am on the day of the event, and more information can be found on the Downtown Somerville website.
