This is the 10th Annual Newtown Library Company 5k.  We are holding our annual event on 10/1/2016 to coincide with the 40th Newtown Market Day festivities.

The 5k race course will end near library building at the start of the Market Day booths and activities. There will be a special, one-time only, change to the course in honor of our event.

There are over 70 crafters, demonstrators and artists coming with a wide variety of interesting crafts, from spinning, quilting, rug hooking, fine arts, jewelry making, photography and blacksmithing.
