Opportunities to support your community – and have a ton of fun – range from positions on the Angel Run Committee to race weekend volunteers. Some positions are available for next year; others will become available within the next year or two. Race weekend volunteers are always needed. Grab a friend and get involved! Angel Run Committee positions: Angel Run race weekend support needs: • Race Director (co-chair) • baking • Event Coordinator (co-chair) • directing parking • Treasurer • registration • Registration Coordinator • t-shirt packing and delivery • Decorations Coordinator • Post-Race Party Coordinator • Marketing and Publicity • Shirt and Bib Coordinator • Corporate Sponsorships Connect to Learn More Email AngelRun@MedfieldFoundation.org or call (774) 469-0260. Did You Know? In 2006, family and friends of Natasha Domeshek organized the Angel Run, an MFi initiative, in remembrance of their beloved third grader who loved extending kindness and warmth to everyone she met. Twelve years later, this Medfield holiday tradition continues, with the vast majority of proceeds used to extend kindness and warmth to Medfield residents in need.

  • If you registered after early-bird registration, you can pick up your bib # (no shirt) at the registration desk starting at 11am on Sunday.

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!

Run in the 2018 Angel Run, apprentice for the 2019 Angel Run, run the 2020 Angel Run

Home_Page_Angel_Run_800x600-500x300

Rose Colleran and Susan Weisenfeld (above) have co-chaired the Medfield Foundation Angel Run for many years, and today announced that they will do so for two more spectacular, family fun filled Angel Runs, this December 2 and in 2019.

Therefore, the Medfield Foundation is looking for someone interested in learning how to operate the Angel Run over the next fifteen months by apprenticing to these two pros, to learn the ropes, and to then take over running the Angel run to be held in early December 2020.  The Angel Run is Medfield premier family fun event, and raises monies for Medfield families in need.

Angel Run 2018 – Register Now

angel-run-2016

Greetings Angel Run Friends,

Join us for the 13th running (or walking) of the Angel Run on Sunday, December 2 at 12:30pm!

Registration for the MFi Angel Run is officially open. Registration is available online for $25.00 per person at MedfieldFoundation.org/angel-run and runs through October 28. Register by this date to receive the always popular commemorative Angel Run shirt. After October 28 you can still register online, however the price goes up to $30.00 per person and you will not receive a shirt.

Once again this year we will be offering bib tag timing to provide you the most accurate time possible and a special separate starting corral for competitive runners. You decide if you should belong to that group. Be sure to note this on your registration.

We’ve also got great news to share as well. With the completion of the Philips Street bridge, the Angel Run will be returning to our official 5K route. A map of the route is available when you register or on our website.

New this year – The Sleigh Division!

This year runners pushing strollers can register for the Sleigh Division. Just like Santa speeds through the night with his sleigh, we know that some of our runners speed through the streets of Medfield with their Sleighs (strollers)! Awards will be given for the top male and female runners pushing a sleigh and also for the best decorated sleigh.

 

Register Now!

 

We hope to see you there (with bells on!)

Cheers,

The MFi Angel Run Team
