This run will be virtual and you can start your run any time after December 23rd, 2020 until January 3rd, 2021. Please submit your time at the Racewire website where you do your registration.

Our race has always been about helping the Needham Community. During registration, you will be asked which Needham first responder organization you would like net proceeds to be donated to. The organization with the highest percent votes gets the highest amount of money, etc.
The organization options are:
* Needham Police
* Needham Fire
* Needham School nurses
* Needham Beth Israel Hospital.
New this year: We will be giving a beautiful multi-functional Buff,
which can be used as a hat, headband or face or neck warmer.
Along with the Buff, we will mail out a 10% coupon to Marathon Sports.
