September 10, 2022

Overview
Please join us as we are back in person for the 16th running of the Fallon Health Canal Diggers 5K and Kids Fun Run! We are excited to announce that this year's race will, once again, start at Polar Park! In addition to the start of the Race, the entire Kids Fun Run will take place in the Park. So, don't wait...sign up now!!!

Pre-Race ceremonies will begin at 9:25 AM at Polar Park followed by the Kid's Fun Run at 9:45 AM. The 5K will begin at 10:30 AM and end at the Hibernian Cultural Center where there will be post-race food, refreshments and live entertainment.

For those of you not interested in running in crowds, or who may be busy on Saturday September 10, we will, once again, offer a virtual run as well. Virtual runners will have from Monday September 5, 2022 at 9:00 AM until Friday September 9, 2022 at 12:00 PM to run a virtual 5K and submit your time. The winner of the Virtual 5K will be announced Saturday September 10 with the in person runners.

As you know, each year we strive to improve this all-volunteer, 100% charitable race, making it the premier 5K in the area. This year will be no different. All in person runners can expect the traditional finisher's medal, post-race food, water and beer. There will also be activities for the kids. All Virtual 5K runners will receive a medal.

The first 500 registered participants, whether virtual or in person, we will receive a long sleeve shirt.

Please join us on September 10th as we welcome you back for Worcester's most popular 5K!
