About This Activity

This is a PTO event.  All proceeds go directly to the students of Winthrop Elementary Magnet School.  First 100 participants receive a T-Shirt!  Walker are welcomed!  Prizes will be given to the top 3 winners in over 13 categories.  Lunch will be served to all participants after the race. This challenging 5K run brings you through rolling hills within the city.  The starting point is at Winthrop Elementary School. Take a left onto Crystal Avenue and continue back onto Grove Street. Take a left onto Williams Street.  Take a right onto Vauxhall Street. At the end of Vauxhall Street, turn around and follow the same route back to the school.  Climbing the last hill up Grove Street makes for a difficult & satisfying conclusion to the run!   Can you take the Winthrop 5K Challenge?
