Storybook ending for Bancroft races

Superheroes joined with a bevy of princesses for the second “Book It to the Finish” 5K trail run and Family Fun Runs Sunday, May 5, to benefit the Bancroft School.

The event, which was based on the great lawn of Phillips Academy due to the construction at Bancroft, emphasized reading, with a student book swap among the activities.

About 130 runners took part in one of the day’s three races — the 1/2-mile Kids Run for pre-kindergarten through grade 2, the 1-mile Fun Run for grades 2 and up and the 5K trail run.
