The 8th Annual “Run Your Buns Off” 4.2 Miler

From the Desk of Karen Lukeman

The 8th Annual “Run Your Buns Off” 4.2 Miler will take place on Saturday, Sept. 2, 2017, a great start to Labor Day Weekend. Individual runners, walkers and teams of all ages are encouraged to participate. The start and finish are at Basic Ingredients Bakery located on Rt. 3A in Bristol, with registration starting at 7:45AM and the race beginning at 9:00AM for the professionally timed run/walk. The reward for the runners’ & walkers’ hard work… a homemade sticky bun at the finish line! The top 3 male and female runners, as well as the fastest team, will be awarded prizes; PLUS, everyone has a chance to win at the HUGE raffle filled with goodies, including a paddleboard, donated by local businesses and beyond.

Event organizer Newfound Area Charitable Fund has selected the beneficiaries of the 2017 RYOB 4.2 Miler: • Tapply Thompson Community Center (TTCC) located in Bristol has been serving thousands of area youth since 1946 with year-round after school, summer and sports programming. The TTCC’s Teen Council is raising funds for a gymnasium renovation project. • Day Away program which also serves the Newfound region by providing respite for caregivers of eligible individuals through a social day care program.

The cost is $22 per runner/walker, until day of race when the price is $25. Come and see what the locals and vacationers have been talking about for the last seven years. You can register for the Run Your Buns Off 4.2 Miler online today at:
