The Bat Run 2017

Sunday, September 17, 2017 - 10:00am to 3:00pm

Join the Jesse Heikkila Foundation for The Bat Run, a USATF certified, timed 5K run/walk through historic Middleborough. 

We encourage all runners to come dressed as your favorite Super Hero to honor all the childhood cancer fighters who are the bravest heroes you will ever meet. 100% of the proceeds go directly to childhood cancer research in memory of Jesse who died at the tender age of 7 after battling stage IV Neuroblastoma cancer. Race day shirts will be provided at no charge to the first 300 registrants. 

Awards are given to the top 3 male and top 3 female race finishers in each of the age divisions.
