Fundraising 5K for fire boosters Saturday
The Jaffrey Firefighters Company will hold the 5th annual Jaffrey Fire Department 5K race on Saturday.
The 5K run/walk will be held at 15 Union Street in Jaffrey and is open to participants of all ages and abilities. Registration will be from 8 to 8:45 a.m. on race day, with a cost of $25. Pre-registration is open online and is $20. The first 100 registrants will receive a race T-shirt.
The race begins at 9 a.m. and will be held on the cross-country terrain of the town’s rail trail, including hard pack trails, wooded terrain, and mild hills. Timed event results will be posted after the race.
All proceeds from the 5K race benefit the Jaffrey Firefighters Company Inc., a fundraising and support organization for the Jaffrey Fire Department. The Jaffrey Firefighters Company, Inc., is a volunteer organization made up of the firefighters, their families and members of the community who give their time in support of the Fire Department. This allows the Fire Department to acquire items that cannot be purchased within the town’s budget.
The Jaffrey Fire Department is made up of a full-time Fire Chief and 25 on-call members serving the town. They provide fire prevention, suppression, rescue, EMS, public service and education.
Parking will be at the Jaffrey-Rindge Middle School, across from Union Street. Due to the nature of the trails, participants are asked to leave their pets at home.
