The Road Runners Club of America (RRCA) is the oldest and largest national association of running organizations dedicated to growing the sport of running. Since 1958, the RRCA has awarded championship events through a competitive bidding process at the National, Regional, and State level to RRCA member clubs and events to promote the sport of distance running.
The goal of the RRCA Championship Event Series is to shine a spotlight on well-run events and to award top performing runners in the open, masters (40+), grand masters (50+), and senior grand masters (60+) categories for both men and women.
We are extremely pleased to announce that our race has been selected as the region’s RRCA Championship Event and this year the Sharon Cross Country Music 3K will be run as the 2018 RRCA Regional Cross Country Championship.
Registration Fee is $25. $20 for participants under 18. $30 on race day.
RACE DAY REGISTRATION AVAILABLE STARTING AT 8:00AM SUNDAY OCTOBER 21.
The race will be run partially on a trail and partially on the road. The course starts at the trailhead of historic Deborah Sampson Park in Sharon. It exits the trail for a portion on the road, and then re-enters the trail for the finish.
Deborah Sampson, an American Revolutionary War hero, enrolled in The Continental Army in 1782 and served for the Light Infantry Company of the 4th Massachusetts Regiment. She is one of a very small number of women with a documented record of combat experience during the Revolution. She died in 1827 and is laid to rest in Rock Ridge Cemetery in Sharon.
The course is fast and flat – so be ready to run a PR! Portions are run on the trail, so there are possibilities of roots and rocks along portions of the course.
The 2018 race will be run on Sunday October 21 at 9:00AM.
