On September 19, 2020 at 9:00AM, the Greenfield Firefighters’ Association will be hosting our 5th annual Greenfield Fire Department Road Race which will take place at Oak Park, 971 Forest Rd Greenfield, NH.
The events include the Fire Trial 10K, Hot Foot 5K, and Kids Smoke Stampede (for children 10 and under only). This year, in celebration of the 5th anniversary of the event, we are also hosting the Fire House Half Marathon! We are also proud to announce we have hired a timing company, complete with chip bibs, to ensure accurate and readily available results!
Part of a fire department? Create a team name and register a minimum of 3 runners for the Hot Foot 5K course; the first department to have three runners cross the finish line in the fastest time will win a plaque as well as bragging rights.
The Greenfield Firefighters’ Association is a non-profit 501C3 organization where all proceeds directly support the Greenfield Volunteer Fire Department in: community fire prevention promotional materials, community and department safety education and training, uniforms and equipment not included in the town’s annual budget, providing food during fire emergencies, training drills, and the like as needed, and providing its members a social, athletic, and recreational fellowship to build relational comradery within the department.
