Road race to benefit elementary schools

BEVERLY — For the fourth year in a row, a road race and fun run to benefit the city’s five public elementary schools will be held at Lynch Park.

The Fall Frolic 5K & Fun Run is scheduled for Sunday, with the fun run starting at 9 a.m. and the 5-kilometer road race kicking off at 9:30.

The event raises money for the city’s five elementary schools: Ayers Ryal Side, Centerville, Cove, Hannah and North Beverly. Proceeds are divided based on school size.

Since it started in 2010, the Fall Frolic has raised more than $20,000 for the schools.

Registration begins at 8 a.m. on race day at Lynch Park. The fee for the 5K is $25, or $20 for elementary school runners. The Fun Run fee is $2.

The 5K race follows the same 3.1-mile course as the Beverly Homecoming race. Medals will be given to the top three male and female finishers in each age group.

Staff writer Paul Leighton can be reached at 978-338-2675 or pleighton@salemnews.com.
