The 7th Annual Father’s Day 5K at Margaritas is Sunday, June 19.
Registration for the event is open. Runners and walkers of all ages and abilities are invited to celebrate fatherhood at this family-friendly race presented by Pelmac Industries of New Hampshire. Proceeds from the event help all living in the Greater Strafford County area gain access to quality health care through Goodwin Community Health.
The Father’s Day 5K is a proud member of the Dover Race Series and takes place on a certified course, complete with margaritas-style food and fiesta after the race.
“What better way to kick off Father’s than a great run or walk followed by some fun at Margaritas,” says Samantha Pellerin, race director and marketing coordinator for Goodwin Community Health. “The necktie theme has really caught on over the years. Families show up wearing neckties in honor of a special father in their lives. Some run right along with Dad and some run in honor of a special Father figure that may have passed on.”
Runners/walkers can visit http://www.active.com/dover-nh/running/distance-running-races/father-s-day-5k-at-margaritas-2016 for details and registration.
