The MFi Angel Run is this Sunday

Thank you to those who have already registered for the 2018 MFi Angel Run and for your support of the Medfield Foundation. And for those of you who haven’t, you can still register at the race this Sunday beginning at 11am.

This Sunday will mark the 13th anniversary of the Angel Run! Over 1,200 runners and walkers have already registered and will be lacing up their shoes and heading out on the course for one of Medfield’s most cherished events.

Here are a few details to help make sure you are ready for the big event.

  • The race starts at Medfield High School at 12:30pm.
  • Race shirts and bibs will be delivered to Medfield residents on Wednesday for those who signed up during early-bird registration. If you don’t receive your package by end of day Thursday, please email us at angelrun@medfieldfoundation.org. Be sure to look at your front door, side door or even in your mailbox before contacting us 🙂
  • If you live outside of Medfield, you can pick up your shirt and bib beginning at 11am on Sunday at the Registration desk in the Medfield High School Cafeteria. The high school is located at 88 South St, Medfield, MA 02052 or get directions here.
  • If you registered after early-bird registration, you can pick up your bib # (no shirt) at the registration desk starting at 11am on Sunday.
  • If you haven’t yet registered or have a friend who would like to participate, you can download the registration form and bring it with you on Sunday or fill one out in the Medfield High School Cafeteria. Registration opens at 11am. The cost per runner is $30 (no shirt is included). We take cash, checks (made out to Medfield Foundation) or credit cards if necessary.
  • A limited number of Angel Run shirts will be available for purchase for $15.00 in the cafeteria beginning at 11am.
  • The race ends at Blake Middle School around the back from the high school. There is a post-race party in the middle school cafeteria with tons of snacks and the awards ceremony which begins at 1:30pm. Be sure to stop in.
  • If you registered as a Competitive Runner or for the Sleigh Division, you will have special mark on your bib. The Sleigh Division will be in the first corral and start the race a few minutes before everyone else, followed a few minutes later by the Competitive Runner group. Both groups should be sure to be at the starting line before 12:30. Only those with the Competitive Runner or Sleigh Division marking will be allowed in this first groups.
  • Parking is available at both Medfield High School and Blake Middle School. There will be parking attendants on hand and please follow any parking directions. Overflow parking is available at Metacomet Park. We suggest arriving early to avoid the crowds.
Come Greet Santa

Santa will be arriving at approximately Noon courtesy of the Medfield Fire Department. Be sure to bring the kids and welcome Santa to the Angel Run.

Attention Parents of Medfield School Children

Friday is “Where Your Angel Run Shirt to School Day” at all Medfield schools. Be sure to have your child show their Angel Run spirit by wearing their shirt to school and seeing which of their friends will be participating.


We are still in need of volunteers willing to help out for the event. Do you have family that are planning to watch instead of participate? Their assistance could be very helpful. Open positions are listed on our Sign-up Genius site. And even if you are participating, we are looking for Bakers to provide some treats for the after party. Use the Sign-up Genius site to register as a Baker or donate other party items.
National Anthem

Congratulations to Maria Neafus, 15, who will sing the National Anthem at approximately 12:25pm next to the starting line. Maria is a sophomore at Medfield High School and enjoys acting and singing.

Bib Tag Timing
Your time will be automatic as the clock will start when you cross the starting line and stop when you cross the finish line. No more worrying about jockeying for position.

We ask that the Sleigh Division line up first, followed by the Competitive Runners, then casual runners behind that group, followed by walkers and families with strollers and or dogs. Be sure to look for the flags indicating where to line up for the start.

What about the Weather?

The Angel Run is a rain or shine event. If the weather is a bit unpleasant, we’ll still be doing the event. So dress appropriately and put on a smile.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please email us at angelrun@medfieldfoundation.org.
See you Sunday!
