Registration is available for $30.00 per person. Online registration closes on November 26, 2017 at Midnight. If you miss the online registration, you can register at the race on December 3 beginning at 11:00am in the Medfield High School cafeteria.

If you prefer to print and mail in your registration, you can download our registration form. Please be kind and print clearly. Mail-in forms must be received by November 25, 2017.

For anyone who hasn’t done the Angel Run in the past, this is usually a certified* 5K (see caveat below) with chip timing for the serious runner but it is also a fun-run and walk for anyone looking to enjoy the kick-off to the holiday season. From decorations all along the course to musicians and carolers to an amazing after-party, there’s something for everyone.

For up-to-date information, please Like Medfield Foundation on Facebook or Follow Medfield Foundation on Twitter. We look forward to seeing you in December at the Angel Run!

The Course

The Angel Run course is a USATF certified* 5K. Once again this year we will be offering chip timing to ensure accurate results for all participants. The race begins and ends at Medfield High School.

*Due to continued road construction on the Philip Street bridge, the 2017 course has been modified and is not USATF certified this year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If the bridge construction is completed prior to the race, we will revert back to the original certified course. The modified route is posted below.

5K Training Plan

Jingle All the Way!

Enjoy this great kick-off to the holiday season that is sure to get you in the spirit. Over 1,300 enthusiastic runners, walkers, and volunteers – many with sleigh bells on their sneakers and holiday costumes – descend on the festively decorated race course while enjoying entertainment by carolers, and each other as they jingle their way to the finish line!

The Angel Run is open to the public with all ages encouraged to participate. Run, walk, push your stroller, bring your leashed dog, or volunteer…and feel free to costume up for this festive family event!

Upon finishing the route you will receive your race times and are invited to join us at the finish line for a Post Race Party.

Be a Volunteer!

In order to be race day ready we need your help. More than 1,300 runners will descend on the course at noon on December 3rd and there is much to do to be prepared. Please consider signing up for a small task many of which do not conflict with participating in the event.

Want to get involved? Visit our Sign-Up Genius page to pick the volunteer role that’s perfect for you. All volunteers welcome!

History

In 2006 family and friends of Natasha Domeshek organized the Angel Run as an MFI Initiative in remembrance of their beloved third grader. Once the initial goals of the Angel Run were reached in 2012, the Medfield Foundation Board decided to continue the holiday tradition. Since then, the majority of the proceeds support town residents in need.

 

Thank you to our corporate sponsors to date!
