NECC Campus Classic 5K, Fun Run

Northern Essex Community College will hold its second annual Campus Classic 5K and Fun Run on Saturday, May 3.

The USATF-certified 5K race will begin at 10 a.m. on the college’s Haverhill campus, 100 Elliott St. Competitive runners — as well as novices and walkers — are invited to participate. Registration is $30; online registration will remain open until April 30.

Children ages 12 and under are invited to participate in the Fun Run, which is organized by age group with the first race beginning at 9 a.m. Registration is $10. Children’s activities, including face painting and an obstacle course, will follow the race.

Awards will be given to the top male and female overall 5K finishers, plus age division winners. All Fun Run participants will receive an award. Since this is a Campus Classic, participants are encouraged to wear apparel from their own college.

Proceeds will benefit the NECC Annual Fund, which provides support for student scholarships and academic programs. For more information or to register, visit
